The design is excellent. I have been to multiple new MLS stadiums in the last year (and have been in a few major European stadiums), and this design is absolutely perfect for the targeted size. The square design will allow it to open to concourses and will better integrate with the surrounding neighborhood and the street level (as opposed to the above-street level boxy designs which stand apart from their surroundings). The views and angles in these stadiums is so much better than most other American sports. It is actually similar to the approach at Chaifetz.
I also have good reason to believe the specific site plan for this stadium will be a little different than the old plan and, as a result, will better enable development and connectivity into adjoining downtown areas. They will likely re-use some of the existing ramps/tunnels in an effective way.
Regarding the suggested and staff, this team and league doesn't need the sentimental local tricks and sideshows. MLS is quickly becoming a legitimate league in the global soccer world, with highly competitive team and players being developed and sold to top teams in the world. (e.g. Tyler Adams, Davies, and Miguel A.). The last thing the local team needs to do is treat this as a gimmick sport and parade out washed up players or unqualified personnel just because they have local ties. We need to quit selling our city and region short and get comfortable with this being a cosmopolitan game that can help make our region more attractive to transplants, immigrants, recent grads, and those beyond the parochial local crowd. This doesn't mean we need to alienate the traditional local base, but we need to strategize and market much more broadly. I am fine bringing in Bosnian players, but they better be U-23 prospects who are highly rated and potential international starters. I also would like to see us develop top young Americans through the academy and sign top Mexicans, South Americans, and anyone else who can help us field the best team.
I am downright ecstatic about this team!
