The Wyandotte County (KS) and Kansas City, Kansas, Unified Board of Commissioners yesterday approved a $400M development plan that includes an 18,000-seat stadium for the MLS Wizards, according to Kevin Collison of the K.C. STAR. Plans call for construction of the $147M stadium to "begin as soon as possible" on an 11-acre site in Kansas City, Kansas. Wizards President Robb Heineman said that the stadium, which will be built by Turner Construction, will be capable of "hosting professional soccer as well as many other sports and entertainment events." Wizards Owner OnGoal LLC is "teaming with Lane4 Property Group to develop the project," which is "being subsidized with $144.5[M] in STAR Bonds and $85[M] in state tax credits and cash." The complex also "includes an 18-field, tournament-quality youth complex at Wyandotte County Park," as well as a Cerner Corp. office complex, for which construction will be "under way by December 2011" (K.C.
