County Rejects RSL Stadium Plan, Relocation Possible
Published July 12, 2006
MOVE ON HORIZON? RSL Owner Dave Checketts said the vote “puts the future of the club in Utah in serious jeopardy.” MLS Commissioner Don Garber gave a “grim analysis hours after digesting the news.” Garber: “We can’t allow that team to stay in that market unless we have some vision for a soccer-specific stadium.” Checketts also owns the Blues, and there are reports that the team is “looking at moving” to St. Louis. Other potential sites include Portland, Phoenix and Rochester, New York. Anderson said that investors in Rochester “are willing to offer Checketts ‘three times’ what he paid for the franchise” (SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 7/12).
