Soccer Specific Stadium farther away .....


A good news came out of Foxborough for people like me who cares about renewable and sustainable energy. Kraft Group has signed an agreement with NRG to provide more solar power to the stadium.

Here is an article in the examiner: http://www.examiner.com/pro-soccer-in-boston/kraft-group-and-nrc-announce-wind-turbine-more-solar-power-for-gillette-stadium

However, the soccer fan in me finds the news depressing.

This means that our holy grail of a soccer specific stadium in Boston (Wonderland anyone) grew a little farther away. I still cling to the hope although I do not believe it will ever occur as long as the owner of the team owns Foxborough stadium.

It makes no economic sense for them to build a soccer specific stadium when they have already an existing stadium. Who cares if the place is empty, if there is football line on the field and the experience is nothing like the communion between team and fans in a place like Seattle or Vancouver?

A soccer specific stadium would be a financial mistake for Kraft Group and one thing about the owner, is that they are very shrewd business people.

So the talk of a soccer specific stadium being 12 to 24 months away will continue while we will all know it. will. not. happen.

And this is a bummer.

Peace.
