Skyline Sports Complex
|Location||201 Championship Way,
|Owner||The City of Harrisburg, Department of Parks & Recreation|
|Harrisburg City Islanders (USL) (2004–2015)|
The original structure was built in 1987 and is adjacent to Metro Bank Park.
The field was under renovation in 2008, which included repositioning and the planting of new grass, in preparation for the 2009 Islanders' season. The upgrade project was headed by Mayor Stephen R. Reed and completed internally by the City of Harrisburg's Department of Parks and Recreation staff.
Due to Skyline Sports Complex field and stadium not meeting up with USL's standards, the Harrisburg City Islanders will splitting their home games next door at FNB Field and at Clipper Magazine Stadium in nearby Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
As of 2015, the parent company of the Harrisburg City Islanders, the Harrisburg Capital Soccer, Inc. have begun applying for grant funding to facilitate upgrades to the existing complex. The proposed upgrades are anticipated to include increasing capacity to 5,000 seats, dedicated VIP areas, entrance plaza, upgraded concessions, restrooms, indoor locker rooms, state-of-the-art broadcasting booth, and a new scoreboard. New seating is intended to be an upgrade from existing bleachers with a mix of individual bucket seats, ten luxury suites, a VIP deck with seating, and bleacher seats with back supports.
