I think they’re committed to City Stadium because they don’t have a better option.The kickers seem very committed to city stadium and we seem very committed to not being there.
It does seem like it would make more sense for the kickers to come to the boulevard and figure out a cool new use for city stadium but maybe the kickers want to stay there in part because it allows them so much opportunity for growth. You could easily have a 20k soccer specific stadium there some day.
I don’t see the city or anyone else building a new 20k seat stadium where City Stadium is if VCU already has a new place built.
As it is, City Stadium is a dump now. One entire side isn’t even stable enough for fans to sit on. I go to a lot of Kickers games and would love to shift over to watching games in a 10k seat VCU stadium in the Athletic Village.
