The Sentinel is officially supporting the effort to get a soccer stadium in Orlando so the Orlando City Soccer Lions will become part of the MLS.
The Orlando Sentinel writes:
Orlando still has a shot at scoring Central Florida's second big league team, a Major League Soccer franchise. But the clock is running down, and the City Beautiful faces stiff competition from Miami and Atlanta.
If leaders in Central Florida aren't willing to team up for this goal, Orlando will get shut out. Who knows when, if ever, the region would get another shot at a big league team?
Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs needs to match the urgency showed by Orlando MayorBuddy Dyer. And the region's tourism titans need to lend the kind of decisive support they offered in 2006 to build Orlando's three downtown venues.
Orlando's bid hinges on building a new soccer stadium with about 20,000 seats, a condition set by Major League Soccer. We wish the league would be satisfied with the 65,000-seat Citrus Bowl, already in line for a $200 million upgrade. It's not. So the surest way for Orlando to take itself out of the running for a team is to balk at building a soccer stadium.
Months ago, the city and owners of the Orlando City Soccer Club came up with a workable plan for taxpayers and the team to share the cost of a new $110 million soccer stadium. But that plan counted on $30 million in sales-tax rebates, and a bill to make the rebates available died in this year's legislative session.
