From David Leon Moore’s “Las Vegas makes plays to lure pro sports teams” in USA Today:
The most pressing prospect is a potential Major League Soccer franchise, but the deal will probably only happen if the Las Vegas city council agrees in December to include public funding in the construction of a $200 million soccer-only stadium in the downtown area.
“We’re the perfect place for people to come and enjoy all the amenities we have, and we’re certainly ready for major league sports. We’ve made so many advances in the medical community and in cultural offerings. Pro sports is the one little piece we haven’t quite gotten the hook around.”
– Carolyn Goodman, mayor, Las Vegas
