Pence: Soccer stadium deserves ‘fair look’

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Indiana Gov. Mike Pence says he will give a fair look at the plan that calls for state involvement in the financing of a new Indianapolis soccer stadium.

The Indy Eleven wants state tax money generated by the stadium to be used to help pay for it.

Plans call for an $82 million downtown facility with 18,500 seats. The governor says it needs to be a fiscally responsible plan.

“I want to make sure that any time we see a public facility that has public support,” he said, “that the public that enjoys that facility will be the ones we look to for that financial support.”

The Indiana House approved the plan on Wednesday.

It now goes to the state Senate for consideration.
