Austin City Council members push for open debate on potential MLS Soccer stadium site

As the city discusses a potential Major League Soccer stadium in Austin, several city council members are pushing for an open debate on the McKalla Place site.

AUSTIN -- As the City of Austin considers a possible Major League Soccer stadium, several Austin City Council members are pushing for an open debate on the McKalla Place site.

The 24-acre site located near an already busy Burnet Road and Braker Lane has been the subject of debate after Precourt Sports Ventures announced they would like to build a soccer stadium there. However, two other proposals call for a mixed development site which would include apartments, restaurant and park space.

PSV would be exempt from all property taxes and keep all stadium revenue, and the city would pay for infrastructure, event services, environmental clean-up and other costs that come with the potential stadium.
