The Maryland Stadium Authority voted Tuesday to approve a $100,000 feasibility study to examine the financial viability of building a soccer stadium that could be used to lure a Major League Soccer franchise. The study, after a lengthy negotiation between the city and the Maryland Stadium Authority, will be paid for entirely by the city of Baltimore. In September 2009, Mayor Sheila Dixon wrote a letter to the Maryland Stadium Authority asking that it consider a 42-acre waterfront Westport project as a potential site for a soccer complex that could hold between 17,000 and 20,000 people and be used to lure D.C. United into making Baltimore its permanent home.

Et cetera Missed deadlines slow progress on a new stadium for D.C. United Five months after Washington Mayor Vincent C. Gray announced a plan to build a new soccer stadium, the administration has missed a series of self-imposed deadlines, including a promise to deliver a land deal for the D.C. Council to vote on this year. City Administrator Allen Y. Lew , a top aide to Gray, said he was pressing to complete a land swap before Christmas with developers, utilities and business owners to obtain the land for the proposed 20,000-seat stadium and adjacent bars and restaurants on Buzzard Point.

A soccer-only stadium in Westport could generate up to 940 new jobs and $2.8 million in city tax revenue, according to a feasibility study released by the Baltimore Development Corp. Wednesday. Officials from Major League Soccer team D.C. United have held preliminary talks with the city about a possible move to Baltimore but won't enter "formal" discussions until a commitment is given about a facility. The study, commissioned by the Maryland Stadium Authority, analyzed two potential scenarios — a 25,000-seat stadium in Westport and a 10,000-seat stadium for the Crystal Palace franchise in the Carroll-Camden complex south of M&T Bank Stadium.

Mayor Sheila Dixon has asked the Maryland Stadium Authority to explore the possibility of building a soccer stadium in Baltimore to woo D.C. United, the Major League Soccer franchise in the nation's capital that has said it is looking for a new stadium. The letter, dated last Wednesday and received by the agency Monday, asks the authority to study the potential benefits of building a 17,000- to 20,000-seat stadium that could serve as United's permanent home, as well as host concerts, lacrosse games and other events.

When Pete Medd and Jim Cherneski launched Baltimore's latest professional outdoor soccer incarnation in 2006 with Crystal Palace USA, they set modest goals and achieved modest success. Three seasons later, the former Towson University teammates have expedited the program in the hope of playing in a 10,000-seat, $35 million downtown stadium close to the city's Camden Yards sports complex. On Wednesday at a news conference at ESPN Zone, they unveiled a new name (Crystal Palace Baltimore)

NEW YORK-- --It is hard to imagine a baseball world without Yankee Stadium, but the clock is running down on the House that Ruth Built, and its fabled concourses will go dark after next season. There will be a new Yankee Stadium, of course, with wall-to-wall JumboTrons and fancy luxury boxes, and it will improve on the old one in all the ways we care about these days. More comfortable. More accessible. More revenue. It'll be in New York, so it will be the best and the brightest, even if it isn't, and it will be another giant step toward the total gentrification of baseball.

Twice in the past year, Baltimore has become a soccercentric city. It happened last summer, for a day, when two of the world's best teams, AC Milan and Chelsea, came to M&T Bank Stadium, bringing more than 72,000 fans with them. It happened recently, during the monthlong World Cup, when fans of the game piled into bars and crowded near the harbor to watch the U.S. team's run to the knockout round. But could it happen on a more regular basis? City officials, developers and local soccer aficionados believe it can, if plans move forward for a soccer-only stadium and if Baltimore is successful in attracting D.C. United away from Washington.

The Maryland Stadium Authority will study the potential for a 7,000-seat soccer stadium south of M&T Bank Stadium, a $30 million proposal by the city's minor-league, outdoor soccer club that would help anchor a sports and entertainment district near the city's proposed slots casino. Crystal Palace Football Club USA, which plays at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and has been looking for a site of its own, is forming a joint venture with the owners of about 15 acres in the Carroll Camden Industrial Park to develop a stadium in time for the 2012 season.
