They really should reconsider the capacity, and the delays provide the opportunity to do so. 25k max, ideally 20k.

Agreed. No reason they can't make a design that accommodates easy expansion to 30k in the future, but start with something that will ensure quality environments and near-sell-outs every week.

Says I, anyway.

With Nashville's MLS stadium progress stalled, Mayor Cooper and team owner meet to discuss hurdles

The project has stalled as Cooper holds off on signing paperwork to green light demolition of the old expo centers, a needed step to make way for the stadium. Cooper has said questions remain on how much taxpayers will be asked to spend for infrastructure costs surrounding the stadium, including upgrading water and sewer lines, roads and possibly a new bridge.

Cooper does not oppose the stadium project and is "certainly supportive" of soccer in Music City, his spokesperson Chris Song told The Tennessean on Tuesday. "Demolition will occur when the next stages of the project are ready to go," Song said.

As an at-large council member, Cooper was one of the loudest critics of the MLS stadium proposal. He voted against a 10-acre private development that is part of the project and sought a November referendum to let the public decide on the infrastructure costs. But while campaigning for mayor, he said he would "make the fairgrounds work for everyone," but didn't share any further details on the fate the stadium project.

Cooper has said his fundamental issue with the MLS stadium was that he believed it was "in the wrong place." The new soccer stadium, he has said, should have been in the downtown area, so that it can take advantage of existing resources and parking. Cooper has at least discussed other locations — including a longtime object of redevelopment desire, the PSC Metals scrapyard on the east bank of the Cumberland River.

Song declined to comment when asked if Cooper wants to relocate the stadium. Hunt told The Tennessean the ownership group would "absolutely not" support a relocation. Cooper opposed the 10-acre private development as a council member and that as mayor, his thoughts on using public land for private gain "have not wavered," Song said.

Nashville SC will begin MLS play in February. The team plans to play at Nissan Stadium in its first two seasons before moving into a completed fairgrounds stadium in 2022. They have not yet signed their new lease. As part of the MLS stadium deal, the city approved giving 10 acres of land at the fairgrounds for a mixed-use development that includes housing, retail, public space and other amenities near the stadium.

But a clause in the lease has proven a financing obstacle. Legislation currently penalizes Nashville SC if the club fails to play a single game in a 24-month period during the first 30 years of its lease at the stadium. If the team fails to meet the terms, the 10 acres land — which would be run by MarketStreet Enterprises, minority owners of the MLS franchise — would revert to the city.
