New Tampa Bay Rays stadium financing ideas to be presented

New Tampa Bay Rays stadium financing ideas to be presented | Sports Facility Management. 3091400 | 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!!

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.

So much has changed in the quality of security all over the country in light of terroist attacks over the last century. Security in sports facilities is no exception.

Joshua Evans's curator insight, January 17, 2014 10:13 AM

Security can never be thorough enough. At an event like a game, there are thousands of potential victims if a terrorist attack happens. Always think security. 

Jason Cain's curator insight, March 22, 2014 10:47 PM

Security has been as important as the teams that are playing since the 9/11 attacks on the United States. It is important to keep everyone safe especially in large crowds where attacks would involve a lot of people at one time.
