That stadium mockup is absolutely awful.. Looks exactly like a used car dealership.

It doesn't really look like a stadium at all. That is an away trip I would do often:)

They must be betting on attendance coming solely from away support? Maybe they'll wrap it up in a casino package, along with Celine and Criss Angel. Seriously, of all the places who deserve an MLS team and would help grow the league, this is not one of them.

considering people are complaining about the weather and heat during the Qatar World Cup, why do they think that regular season matches in the summer heat of Vegas will be any different? to my mind, this is just a ploy to drive other bids further and faster along.

Vegas also has the potential gambling issue to deal with. Fair or not, A lot of people don't want pro sports there because of potential betting related issues.

are you telling me there might be some guys who would walk up to a few Vegas players and "make them an offer they couldn't refuse?"

So many better places for an MLS club, and so many better places to travel to.

The Las Vegas City Council has asked investors hoping to bring a Major League Soccer team to Las Vegas to submit a financial plan by Sept. 1 for their proposed stadium, the Las Vegas Sun reported on Wednesday.
