New stadium report helps track real cost of soccer stadium

LAS VEGAS -- Dreams for a downtown soccer stadium could mean a hefty price tag for the public of $150 million over thirty years. But will the stadium actually fill the seats and make money for the city? That's the big question on a lot of minds.

The proposed stadium could be built in Symphony Park, and the city of Las Vegas is banking big on local soccer fans to show up, and pay $25 per ticket per match.

For 2017 the stadium report projects the facility, should it be built, would hold 79 events with more than 700 thousand attendees total. That breaks down to about 20 thousand people per Major League Soccer match.

That's about 20 percent higher than the leagues average, according to councilman Bob Beers.

“How are we going to get 20,000 or even 18,000 into this thing with no history of professional soccer,” Bob Beers, Las Vegas City Council asked?

Lauren Rozyla: “Do you feel this process has been transparent?”

Bob Beers: “Ummm, no.”
