Earlier today, the club announced its plan to build a new Downtown Railyards stadium. Republic FC Owner and CEO Kevin Nagle shared additional details about the vision to create a community asset and invest in the city during an exclusive interview with FOX40, which aired this morning:
“Just over 13 months since Sacramento’s MLS bid fell apart because of Ron Burkle pulling his support, Republic FC owner Kevin Nagle is once again making a push to build a permanent stadium at the Railyards.”
“We’re going to bring a soccer stadium to Sacramento, in the railyards,” Nagle told FOX40 in an exclusive interview.
“We’ve been working on it for quite a while,” Nagle said. “Frankly, since we had the exit from being admitted into Major League Soccer. We had to go back to the drawing boards and determine what our next steps are gonna be, and it was determined that one way or another, we were gonna create a soccer stadium – whether it would be for Major League Soccer or leading up to Major League Soccer.”
“This new concept has been in the works for over a year, with Nagle determined to bring a stadium to downtown Sacramento, regardless of whether or not MLS follows.”
