American Legion Memorial Stadium Renovation

Recommended Posts

What makes you all think new brand? Based on the way MLS has been bringing teams up from USL, I'd be really surprised if they didn't follow the pattern of keeping the USL brand. Started really back in 2009 with Sounders and been going ever since. I realize some brands have been more ingrained than others but like, Nashville SC was very new for example too.

Nashville MLS is the same group as Nashville USL that's why its the same.  Same with Cincy and same if Sacramento/ NCFC were selected.  St. Louis MLS is a different ownership than the USL group, so they'll come with their own brand.  Charlotte would be different from Independence.

Same with Atlanta instead of adopting the Silverbacks who were a team that played in the burbs with minimal attendance.  Different ownership, new brand.

I love the Independence, I've had season tickets since the day they announced taking over the rights to the Eagles USL spot.  But had they not just acquired and merged academies I don't even think Tepper would entertain any sort of business deal with them.  Nor would he have had to.  Owning one of the largest youth academies in the country is the ownership's golden parachute I hope.  Because for my enjoyment and a few others they've hemorrhaged money for the last 5 years and the folks that run the team are good people.  I hope they're not left with shelling out millions for nothing when our $12B man gets his way.

Gonna be exciting in 2021 when the Independence get playing on this new Stadium.  Will really make CLT a soccer town between this and MLS Uptown.  I hope both are well attended/supported by the region.  Also - would love to see the MLL Team reconstituted after 2021.

XFL would be nice, but I think it’s probably a smaller stadium than they’d like to have, especially if the league catches on.  Maybe the plans still call for the ability to be expanded if necessary.

I hope Major League Rugby finds its way to Memorial stadium.  Would be really great to have MLR, MLL, and USL (maybe the XFL one day too) all playing at the stadium.
