New stadiums can cost several billion dollars to build and who wants to spend that kind of money when the public could foot most of the bill?
True, there are some owners who have shouldered the entire cost, but those are rare.

And it doesn't stop there. Listen in as we lay out the playbook on how to build new stadiums using your money.
