New Tampa Bay Rays stadium financing ideas to be presented

New Tampa Bay Rays stadium financing ideas to be presented | Sports Facility Management | Scoop.it

TAMPA, Fla. -- Almost two years after the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce dove head-first into the Rays' Stadium Saga, the influential group will release its findings today on "best practices" to fund a new Rays stadium.

 

The Tampa chamber teamed up with the St. Pete chamber for the study, dubbing their group of prominent business leaders the "Baseball Stadium Financing Caucus."

 

The group, which has been supportive of a new stadium in Tampa Bay without delving into preferred locations, has been meeting behind closed doors for the better part of the last 18 months.

 

Monday's press conference is likely to address the elephant in the room: location of a new stadium may not matter as much as finding a way to finance it.

 

While the timing of the announcement could be better - a recent firesale of talent by the Miami Marlins has cast public subsidies of stadiums in a negative light - the group is hoping its ideas can break the stadium stalemate the Rays and the region have been locked in for the last few years.

Why is this not an issue on all levels? Public subsidies for sports stadiums is unsat!!

Scott Chadwick's comment, June 26, 11:44 PM
Although most people cant afford to build a billion dollar stadium. The money needs to come from somewhere I just don't agree with taking it from the tax payers. I know its difficult to get the money but I don't want to pay for it.

Five of The World's Most Sustainable Sports Stadiums

Five of The World's Most Sustainable Sports StadiumsGreen Building ElementsSustainability is one of the most important aspects of any new architectural design and in recent years we've seen this spread into the world of sports stadiums.

Sustainability is one of the most important aspects of any new architectural design and in recent years we’ve seen this spread into the world of sports stadiums. Traditionally, the concept behind sports stadiums has been to create a colosseum-like structure which adds theatre and creates an incredible atmosphere with little prior thought ever given to sustainability. Recently, things have begun to change and we’re now seeing more and more architects giving sustainability the attention it deserves when designing new sports stadiums...

1. What did you learn? I learned about how different companies recently have worked together to build stadiums with sustainable designs.

2. What information did you find interesting and educational? I think it is interesting how these companies have been designing these structures, and what they have been using to build them with.

3. Why did you select the article? I selected this article to learn about how companies are conserving important materials such as water.

4. How will this information help you in the sport management industry?

This will help me in the industry since I will be able to use this information to make suggestions as to how to improve facilities in the sport field.

We found the most ridiculous high school football field

We found the most ridiculous high school football field | Sports Facility Management | Scoop.it

There are high school football stadiums in Texas that seat 18,000 fans, cost $60 million and arenamed after Dallas Cowboys owner/president/general manager Jerry Jones.

But Diamond Ranch Academy, a premier youth residential treatment center for struggling teens in Hurricane, Utah, has put its own twist on what a high school football field can look like today.  With a gorgeous backdrop.

Jacksonville Jaguars want $2 million annual Florida sales tax rebate for 30 years

Jacksonville Jaguars want $2 million annual Florida sales tax rebate for 30 years | Sports Facility Management | Scoop.it

Wine and football. A measure to give the Miami Dolphins $3 million a year in sales tax rebates and hotel bed tax money has been rapidly advancing through the Legislature.

 

Now it’s time for the Jacksonville Jaguars to finally hit the field of legislative committee rooms. A proposal (SB 922) by Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island, would allow $2 million a year in sales tax rebates for stadium improvements to go to a pro sports team that already receives a similar break. Terms of the deal require a team to plan more than $80 million in upgrades and to have at least 15 years remaining on its stadium lease.

 

EverBank Field in Jacksonville is one of eight stadiums and arenas in Florida currently receiving sales tax rebates from Florida. The committee will also review the Florida Wine Canister Act (SB 658) that would allow distributors to make and sell "wine kegs" or large containers of wine. (Monday, 1 p.m., 110 Senate Office Building, The Capitol.)

What are your thoughts on this?  Will it bring more revenue to Florida if we give them this?
