H-E-B Park is located on 1616 S. Raul Longoria road in Edinburg, Texas. The City of Edinburg is home to 84,000 residents, while over 1.3 million people call the four counties that make up the Rio Grande Valley home. Edinburg is the third largest city in the RGV and serves as the county seat for Hidalgo County. H-E-B Park and all its amenities will enable the park to be a staple as an entertainment hub in the Rio Grande Valley.

Fans will be provided an outstanding environment inside H-E-B Park. The stadium will be the first of its caliber in the Rio Grande Valley and give the community a one-of-a kind experience. H-E-B Park and its amenities aim to enhance the standard of living in Edinburg and the Rio Grande Valley.

The RGV FC Toros will serve as the anchor tenant of H-E-B Park and will kick off their inaugural game once the stadium is ready to be played on.
