Sahlen's Stadium, formerly PAETEC Park and Marina Auto Stadium, is a soccer-specific stadium in Rochester, New York, US. It is home to the Rochester Rhinos of the USL league, and the Western New York Flash of the National Women's Soccer League. It is also home of the Rochester Rattlers of Major League Lacrosse. The stadium also hosts other sporting events such as collegiate soccer, Rochester Rhinos Elite youth soccer games and practices, American football, field hockey and drum and bugle corps competitions as well as concerts.HistoryThe stadium was designed by HOK Sport (now Populous). It was constructed on a filled-in section of the Erie Canal's original routing through Rochester. This was also once the route of the Rochester Subway, which was built in the old canal bed and ended operations in 1956. PAETEC Park was funded jointly by the state of New York, the city of Rochester, and the Rhinos (the State of New York paying $23 million while the Rhinos and the city will pay the remaining amount). Infrastructure improvements will be paid for by the city of Rochester.

  • The new owners have done a wonderful job making this stadium a great venue. It is clean and all the seats have a great view of the field. The security people are friendly but serious about keeping a family friendly atmosphere. The new beer garden and food venues are very nice too. It is located in a depressed area of the city but the local people have always been friendly to the kids and I. Definitely come out for a game!
  • Lovely looking stadium. Comfortable enough seats. Accessible concessions and restrooms. Concession prices just really high! But, some concessions accept Credit Card.
  • Had a great time at the WNY Flash Annual Pink Game benefiting The Cancer Couch Foundation which raises money for Metastatic Breast Cancer. Great stadium, great game!
  • Sat in the seats (not bleachers) for about 4 hours, and was plenty comfortable. Concessions with plenty of options, had a great time.
  • Great venue to watch soccer. I wish Syracuse had a facility like this. Not a bad seat in the house.
