Spurs Group Eyes Alamo Stadium
By Lindsay Kastner, San Antonio Express News
Spurs Sports & Entertainment Vice President Leo Gomez said Thursday the company will propose bringing a United Soccer Leagues franchise to Alamo Stadium to play 12 to 15 home games, eventually developing it into a Major League Soccer team.
“We would work to grow the market and get to that point sooner rather than later,” Gomez said.
The proposal would mean keeping the stadium's football field but doing away with the eight-lane track to make room for the pro soccer field.
The San Antonio Independent School District, which owns the stadium and the adjacent Convocation Center, begins soliciting partnership concepts for the facilities today
