New England Revolution Eye Somerville for Soccer Stadium
The MLS soccer team and the city have had "conversations" about building a stadium in Assembly Square, according to New England Soccer Today.
Somerville and the New England Revolution, an MLS soccer team, have had discussions about building a new soccer stadium in Assembly Square, according to New England Soccer Today.
The discussions are preliminary, and The Revolution are also considering Revere's Wonderland Greyhound Park as a possible site for a soccer-specific stadium, the article says.
The MLS team has looked at Somerville as a possible place to build a stadium before, the soccer website says: In 2007 and 2008 it considered the Inner Belt and Brickbottom section of the city as a possible site.
This time around, the case for Somerville is bolstered because Assembly Square would be home to an Orange Line station that's expected to open in 2014, according to New England Soccer Today.
