President and CEO speaks following release of stadium feasibility study by City of Baltimore

Washington, D.C. – Following the release of a soccer stadium feasibility study by the City of Baltimore, D.C. United President and CEO Kevin Payne issued the following statement:

“We appreciate the diligence with which the Maryland Stadium Authority studied the economic impact of a D.C. United Stadium in Baltimore. The MSA and its staff are all stars. We’re not surprised at the finding that our stadium will drive tens of millions of dollars in new spending each year, attract hundreds of thousands of fans annually, help create hundreds of new jobs and generate millions of dollars of new State and Local tax revenues. We appreciate the interest that Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and the City of Baltimore have shown in our team and potential stadium, and will continue our conversations as we work toward the best possible long-term home for D.C. United.”
