San Diego Stadium Coalition’s Response to the CSAG Site Recommendation – March 12, 2015

SAN DIEGO STADIUM COALITION’S RESPONSE TO THE CSAG’S STADIUM SITE RECOMMENDATION
The SDSC Looks Forward to Reviewing the Accompanying Financing Plan

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (March 12, 2015) – The San Diego Stadium Coalition appreciates the efforts of Mayor Faulconer and the Citizens’ Stadium Advisory Group to make a site recommendation for the construction of a new stadium in San Diego.

We look forward to reviewing the accompanying financing plan that will support the group’s recommendation.

Although our position is that the downtown site offers many more realistic options in terms of financing, community support and timelines, our primary goal has been, and remains, to get a world-class stadium built in San Diego.

When the CSAG’s financing plan is presented, we will review it carefully and thoroughly. If the plan is based on realistic assumptions, makes fiscal sense for the taxpayers of San Diego and the Chargers and includes buy-in from the key stakeholders, we will offer our full support to promote the Mission Valley site.

About The San Diego Stadium Coalition

Founded in 2008, the San Diego Stadium Coalition is an organization whose members are committed to working with municipal entities to facilitate the construction of a world-class stadium within San Diego County, which will serve as a home for the San Diego Chargers, SDSU Aztecs, College Bowl Games and other events. Our commitment is fueled by a passion for local sports, an acute understanding of the San Diego market and an unyielding desire to keep high profile events and the Chargers (the region’s only NFL franchise) within the County. We will attain our goal by working transparently with key stakeholders including citizens, politicians, and regional business leaders. For more information, visit http://www.sdstadium.org.
