The Maryland Bays, who play the San Francisco Bay Blackhawks for the American Professional Soccer League championship Saturday in Boston, are hinting they want to keep their home base in Columbia.
Owner John Liparini met with Howard County officials today to discuss a possible upgrading of Cedar Lane Park and also the possible construction of a 10-15,000-seat arena at Howard County Community College.
The Bays averaged 1,698 spectators per game this year. Last year the figure was 1,074.
Attendance at the last four games of the season averaged 2,664.
