Build the same thing downtown but 4 times as high and I'd love for it to be our new tallest.

RSL to host All-star game in new stadium!



Major League Soccer's All-Star game to be held in Utah
July 9th, 2008 @ 3:45pm
By John Daley and Randall Jeppesen

Utah's Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise is making plans to host a major league event in its new stadium next summer. Real Salt Lake (RSL) will host the MLS All-Star game in 2009. The team made that announcement here this afternoon.

They also took the opportunity to show off their new facility, which boasts two-week-old sod and, though it's a little tough to see through the smog today, world-class views of the mountains.

With each day, RSL's new stadium in Sandy gets closer to opening, and the team, which has endured controversy over the project, is ready to trumpet its completion.

Today, RSL announced that the MLS All-Star game is coming to town next summer.

Gov. Jon Huntsman said, "From a sport promotion standpoint, this is another step up in proving the point that we are in fact a world class destination."

It's a $110 million project, $65 million of that came from private funds. The rest is public money, including $35 million in county hotel taxes, which was what the controversy was mostly about.

The lawmaker who engineered the deal to put the stadium in his home town makes no apologies about being an advocate for soccer. Utah House Speaker Greg Curtis said, "I did this for the kids. I said sometimes you have to do something for the younger generation when they don't have a voice."

The stadium will host its first Real Salt Lake game in October and then the Major League Soccer All-Star game next summer.

Owner of Real Salt Lake Dave Checketts said, "It is a beautiful stadium. It's coming together very quickly, and we will have the best players from the world playing on this field around Pioneer Day next year 2009." Checketts hopes soccer powerhouse Real Madrid could be the opponent for that game.

Jason Kreis, Real Salt Lake's coach, said he's tempted to bring back his legendary goal celebration when the team moves to the new stadium for good. When asked if we would see some of the famous Jason Kreis back flips, Kreis replied, "You know, it could be the first time you see Jason Kreis in a suit, doing a back flip. We win our first game out there, and maybe I'll do that for everybody."

Construction crews are feverishly working on getting all the work done on the stadium.

Negotiations continue regarding naming rights for this stadium. A representative for the team says the 15-year deal may bring in roughly $2 million a year.

A lot of excellent points Projects. Another critical factor, perhaps more bottom-line than any other, is the city having the capacity to collect tax revenue from these commercial/mixed centers. For many decades Murray was the envy of many communities in the Valley. It's centralized location made it a perfect draw for large commercial centers, which in turn collected a hefty tax income for the benefit of its 35,000 plus residents. Those residents all enjoyed some of the most excellent and affordable city services, yet at the same time had one of the lowest property tax levels of any city in the metro. No community, not even an Alpine or Eagle Mtn. a Highland, Herriman or Draper can afford to be solely a bedroom community. The residents demand convenience, as you pointed out, and a tolerable tax burden.

I don't think anyone deserves to live out there in the first place. If you choose to live in BFE then you deserve to pay the price. Communities that are closer to the core have all of their infrastructure in place. Herriman or Eagle Mountain would deserve to have higher taxes and utility costs. The tax burden should not be placed on developed/established communities.

delts145 Jul 10, 2008 4:49 AM

The point was that these communities are establishing commercial districts, lifestyle centers, assisted living centers, business parks for their residents, etc. etc. etc. in order to lower or mitigate the tax burden, not solely for bragging rights.

It wasn't that long ago that South Salt Lake was rural, or even Millcreek and Holladay. As time progresses, these areas will become even more urban. In L.A., some of the denser areas of the basin, such as Century City and Hollywood were the more rural areas of the city only a few decades ago. There are countless areas in every major metro that were once rural, that are now very urban, including Manhattan or Brooklyn.

Just a thought but I wounder now with today's announcement of the MLS All-Star game coming here to Salt Lake next summer if this would push for more Hotel developments in the Sandy city area.

Love the location or hate the location, this stadium really is a first class venue. I think it's got great lines and it's a jewel in our pro sports crown. I've only seen one other MLS stadium and that is Columbus Crew, it's north of C-bus even further than Sandy is from SLC, it's in the middle of nowhere and it's a huge pile of dung. It's has metal bleechers for the entire stadium, then again it was the first of one of the first soccer specific stadium. I'm going to try to make it to RSL new home opener in October. :banana:

It really is a beautiful facility ... even to a nay-sayer like me. I really hope MLS gets big - and the team stays. But I just don't trust Dave Checketts. He seems like a dirt bag - out for a fast buck, and one who might sell the team at any second, leaving the taxpayers with an empty stadium.

There are times he has come across that way, but I think he's in it for the long haul. He's a local boy, has ties to the community, he had the opportunity to sell the team when the orginal funding didn't go through, and he didn't, and he is on the hook for the funding if the team is sold or folds.

I really think we have a kick a^* stadium we can all be proved of.

delts145 Jul 10, 2008 5:50 PM

I agree Projects, and I think that Real will succeed just as well proportianally in their MLS League as the Jazz have succeeded in their NBA League.
