MADISON, Wis. - City Council members are considering a $1.3 million investment at Breese Stevens Field.
The money would allow 1,300 seats, concession stands, and bathrooms to be built. Conor Caloia, the COO of Big Top which runs Breese Stevens, said the changes would allow for a pro-soccer team to be housed at venue.
"We have a tentative agreement with the league pending on us finalizing an agreement for a long-term facility plan," Caloia said. "We feel that the time is right to bring pro-soccer to Madison we think this is the right neighborhood to do that."
In exchange for the investment from the city Big Top's leasing agreement with Madison will increase.
The city's parks and finance committee will vote on the proposal next week. The City Council will vote May 15.
