Lawmakers to debate Indy Eleven stadium bill

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The future of Indy Eleven takes center stage at the Indiana Statehouse Wednesday.

Lawmakers will debate helping the team build their own stadium, while hopes of bringing major league soccer to town have taken a huge hit.

The debate at the statehouse will come one day after a story in the St. Louis Post Dispatch that quoted MLS commissioner Don Garber as saying that Sacramento and St. Louis are the two cities atop of the league’s expansion wish list.

Also, named by the commissioner were Charlotte, Las Vegas and Phoenix but not Indianapolis.

Supporters of the Indy Eleven are hoping lawmakers will approve plans.

The $550 million development would include a 20,000-seat stadium plus offices, retail and apartments.
