In May 2022, the Maryland Stadium Authority (MSA) Board of Directors approved a request from the Secretary of the Maryland Department of Commerce (DOC) for the MSA to provide advisory services related to a proposed new multi-use soccer stadium in the Baltimore Metro area. The primary operator would be Major League Soccer’s (MLS) DC United and would include an MLS Next Pro Club, as part of a new league.
The study will include a market and economic analysis, as well as a site fit analysis.
The cost of the study is $50,000 with DC United and MSA each funding half.
CORRECTION: Please note that in the Informational section of the Maryland Stadium Authority’s January 3, 2023 Board of Directors meeting there was an error in the Capital Projects Development Group Update verbal report. It is the Right to Dream Proposed Multi-Use Soccer Stadium request that is not proceeding. The MLS NEXT Pro Proposed New Multi-Use Soccer Stadium Business Advisory Services effort is moving forward.
