  • FACILITY NOTES

              In Denver, a Metro Chamber poll says 73% of those
         surveyed endorse a new domed stadium for the Broncos, but
         the six-county metro football board, which will make the
         final decision, calls that option "not economically
         acceptable" (DENVER POST, 1/16)....In Cincinnati, the cost
         of the Bengals' stadium project dropped by nearly $10M when
         Hamilton County sold more than $71M in bonds at an interest
         rate lower than those that financed Riverfront Stadium in
         the '60s.  Leaders had expected the bonds' interest rate to
         be about 5.5%, but the rate came in at 4.92% (POST, 1/14).

  • TERPS WILL GET $800,000 TO PLAY GAME AT RAVENS' NEW STADIUM

              The MD Stadium Authority finalized details yesterday to
         pay the Univ. of MD $800,000 to move the Terps' October 31
         football game against GA Tech to the Ravens' new stadium,
         according to Christian Ewell of the Baltimore SUN.  The
         authority "will receive the money from the Ravens," who
         promote all events at the stadium under the terms of their
         contract with the authority.  In other news, the authority
         approved the lease of land adjacent to the new football
         stadium that will provide 437 parking spaces.  It will
         receive all revenues from parking at the lot for Orioles and
         Ravens games, plus half of the weekday revenues (SUN, 1/16).
