i think a ful time soccer stadium is such a waste of $$$$$$.

Yes your right. Pro Sports owners are such humanitarians, all they do is give. Never do anything for themselves and hope to make money off of it.

I'm sure taht's what this stadium is. A glorified Rec center that won't generate any income...

There's a developer that wants to build something like this in Milwaukee should UWM ever decide to bring its football program back. The design of this one sort of reminds me of all of the other soccer stadiums in this country, and that's not necessarily a bad thing...

What's wrong with the turf across the street from the Potawannami Casino...where the Club team plays now? :P

In all honesty, that was probably the coolest place I ever played football. It was cool to play with The Milwaukee skyline in the background. I never had played anywhere that was in a big city like that, so it was pretty cool. I grew up playing surrounded by the school on one side and corn on the other three.

But the facilities were awful, no locker rooms, a few bleachers, and in a pretty shady part of town.

Are you talking about Valley Fields? Marquette's club team has played there for years, long before UWM reinstated club football a few years ago.

If UWM were to reinstate football at an NCAA-sanctioned level, it would probably be at the Division I-AA level (hopefully with scholarships), which would necessitate the construction of a 15-18,000-seat stadium. The new stadium would be built on the land that was just vacated due to the demolition of the Park East freeway and may be located north of the Bradley Center in order to share parking during off-seasons...

I honestly have no clue the name of it. I think there are 3 fields and tracks in that location. We'd always play on the far south one. We played them like 3 times a year. (JV D-3 football) I played there my freshmen year about 4 years ago.

A few years ago whem I was working for the Mustangs, there was talk of building a stadium that the Rampage were going to have because they were trying to move up to MLS. But then that talk died down. I'n hopeful that the city and some private enterprise can come up with a use for all of that vacated land. There needs to be a pubilc football stadium erected there. It could be used for soccer as well. Mahalo.

i just dont see why. ive never been to a soccer game so i dont know, but how much of a difference would it really be if they played at solider field or comisky or wrigly or something? is the seating different or something, or is it cost more to rent than to own your own? i think its a waste only because i think that professional soccer in America is a dying trend

Yeap, you are right. Pro teams building their own stadiums are a sign of a dying league.

I'm not sure why an owner would want their own stadium. Control over scheduling, revenue, concessions. It adds more jobs. Man, its such a disgrace!

Football and Soccer run at similar times. This leads to scheduling nightmares. But if you want a reason why YOU should like it, if more teams do it you'll stop seeing those pesky yellow lines on the field at your favorite NFL stadium.

ehh.... im not gonna argue. i just think with the league loosing so many players to europe that id be a bit aprenhensive to build a new stadium, if i was an owner.

Even if the leagues died, a nice stadium to play in is better than having a crappy field. I agree with whomever said that htere would probably be other revenue events brought in. I have no idea what Columbus, OH does with their stadium but that was the model for alot of these new soccer stadium.

it aint that many. yeah, it's mostly the name players (Friedel, McBride, Beasley, Convey, now Donovan and eventually Adu) but this happens in a lot of places. That's why there's the A-league (basically the MLS' farm league)

soccer isnt a dying league in the USA on the contrary it is probably the fastest growing sport in the States. MLS looses the best players because thats how soccer works. MLS will get good players to replace them from USL, Central America and Europe.
