YUKON, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma City FC plans to play its home games at Miller Stadium in nearby Yukon when it joins the NASL in 2015.

The $17 million high school stadium, located about 20 miles from downtown Oklahoma City, opened in 2011. It has fixed seating of 6,500 and can be expanded to hold almost 12,000 fans. The Yukon Public Schools Board of Education has unanimously agreed to a multiyear lease with the team, which announced the deal Tuesday. The NASL's Board of Governors will evaluate the plan June 4.

The NASL has 10 soccer teams in the United States and Canada. The Jacksonville Armada FC and Virginia Cavalry FC will join Oklahoma City FC as expansion franchises next year.
