NEW PLANS FOR NFL CARDINALS STADIUM TO BE UNVEILED FRIDAY
Published June 16, 1998
A proposed East Valley convention complex, including a new domed stadium for the NFL Cardinals, "will include more pieces and perhaps less controversy when details are unveiled later this week," according to Lisa Gonderinger of the ARIZONA REPUBLIC. A source who has seen the plans said that "enough private-sector funds have been rounded up to cover the football stadium." The complex is backed by a group called NEXTSTEP, which will unveil the complete plans Friday at a meeting of the East Valley Partnership (EVP). NEXTSTEP, an offshoot of the EVP, won't reveal its private investors until Friday, but Cardinals VP & General Counsel Michael Bidwill has said that the team likely would kick in a "substantial amount." Cardinals officials declined comment on Monday (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 6/16).
