A press conference is scheduled this morning for a group planning to develop the Qualcomm Stadium site in San Diego.

Proposed joint-use stadium would bring Major League Soccer to San Diego

Quote:
SAN DIEGO – The future of Qualcomm Stadium hangs in the balance after the Chargers were taken off the lease after the NFL team announced they were relocating to Los Angeles.

A group of local investors, led by FS Investors founder Mike Stone and former Qualcomm Vice Chairman Steve Altman, have a plan for the Mission Valley site and they will reveal details on Monday.

The group claimed to have exclusive negotiation rights with Major League Soccer for San Diego. They hinted at proposing a state of the art, joint-use stadium that would be the home of a future MLS expansion team and could also serve the San Diego State football team.

The new stadium would be a mixed-use sports and entertainment complex, setting aside land for an NFL stadium.

The group said they would not need taxpayer dollars for the project.

I feel like the movie click where I wish we could just fast forward past all the rumors and get to the teams and stadiums already done.

It's like a new game show: whenever a city loses an NFL team, they are offered a consolation prize of being allowed to argue over a soccer stadium for the next few years. That way they can show they really have the skills at lying and stealing from the taxpayers to someday host an NFL team.

Ahhh....I was hoping for something a little larger perhaps 40,000 seats....and what will happen to the Holiday Bowl? they almost always draw over 50,000.

Agreed. I think the sense of urgency stems from the sense that MLS likely won't expand again for some time after this round, since anything beyond 28 likely won't be feasible unless the TV money makes some quantum leaps. That and I'm sure the league is priming the pump, as well, to ensure they get the best bids and keep the enthusiasm at a high. It wouldn't serve them well in growing the league if they simply remained quiet.

This is the seating chart for the proposed MLS stadium in..you guessed it San Diego..



Very generic..

source>>>>SDSU Aztec forum

If you go to the website that is "hosting these pictures" it is really a web survey about the possible new stadium in SD..click bait in other words..

Yes. Those who plan to be players in the reviving world economy have to build brands, get name recognition and show they need to be brought into every conversation.

The NFL has made bold moves into LA and LV and is looking at London. EPL and China are expanding their reach. MLS needs to take care of business at home and show-off their stadiums and sides worldwide. Every time that someone becomes aware of a new stadium, a new team, a new player you are winning the PR battle. Even more so when they then talk about it.

They can't keep a stadium for one bowl game a year that has the option to go elsewhere with all these new stadiums popping up around cali. This is the right decision if they want to keep D1 football and get a soccer team asap.

Quote:
The Charlotte City Council has historically supported spending public money on sports stadiums, but council members are lukewarm about funding a new soccer stadium in Elizabeth.

Five council members have told the Observer they oppose the proposal. One more “no” vote would derail the plan to have the city kick in $43.75 million toward the $175 million stadium.

Bruton Smith, the billionaire race track owner, and his son Marcus, CEO of Speedway Motorsports, are leading the effort for a Charlotte team. The ownership group has to submit a proposal for an expansion team to Major League Soccer by Jan. 31.

City Council members will hold a three-day retreat in Raleigh starting Wednesday. Kimble’s plan is for council members to drive back from Raleigh around noon and then reconvene Friday afternoon to vote on the MLS plan.
