Where is Turner Field?
Yesterday Stadionwelt reported on the new construction plans of the Braves. As the mayor of Atlanta now told the US sports channel ESPN, the city plans to demolish the old home after the baseball players leave in 2017 to make room for a large-scale expansion.
Kasim Reed stated that the city could not keep up with the generous offer to co-finance the new stadium. Cobb County, the location of the new building, is to subsidise the construction project with 335 million euros in public funds. According to Reed, Atlanta would have had to borrow up to 180 million euros to meet the demands to repair Turner Field and keep the Braves in the city.
According to ESPN, the Association contradicts the statements: the cost statement is not yet final and Reed’s presentation is incorrect.
