MLS In Preliminary Talks With El Paso Group For Possible Expansion Team
Published June 17, 2014
WHO FOOTS THE BILL? In El Paso, Cindy Ramirez writes questions of where an MLS stadium "might be built and who will pay" for a facility to accommodate at least 18,000 spectators are "just starting to kick up." City and county leaders "say they're excited about the possibility of bringing an MLS team to the region, but warn that it will likely be up to voters whether to pull out a red card on any plans involving tax dollars to build a stadium." El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser: "Any major investment, we'd need to take it out to the voters. I want to be transparent and make sure the community is very involved" (EL PASO TIMES, 6/17).
