Orlando, USL Club Hatch New Plan For Publicly Funded Soccer Stadium In City
Published June 11, 2013
TASK AT HAND: In Orlando, Brendan Sonnone notes "MLS to Orlando" Project Dir Brett Lashbrook began his job yesterday, and his "lone task" is getting the franchise "from the USL Pro League into MLS." Lashbrook said, "The sole focus is on the MLS project and everything that involves. A very important aspect is negotiating an expansion agreement and convincing the other owners of Major League Soccer that Orlando will be a great long-term partner. A key part of that discussion hinges on finalizing a stadium plan, very similar to what I was doing in Queens on the New York City II project" (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 6/11).
