Roger Faulkner, chair of the group bidding for a Detroit MSL franchise, says the city's chances of attracting a team are diminished because no proper stadium is available. The 80,000- seat Silverdome, whch was used during the World Cup, is too large for the 20,000-capacity which MLS officials are seeking. MLS also wants its teams to at least have "long term plans" for natural grass field (DETROIT NEWS, 10/19)....The Yankees, the Tampa Sports Authority and Hillsborough County break ground today on the team's $17.5M, 10,000-seat spring training stadium and practice facility (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 10/20)....The new United Center has a seatside computer menu by the arena's concessionaire, Bismarck Services. The in-seat service is available to club and courtside ticket holders and could generate $1M per year (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 10/19).
