ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) - MN United FC soccer players warmed up outside the Minnesota Senate plaza on Monday morning asking lawmakers to support three measures before the league can call Minnesota home.
The club’s ownership group said they’ll privately finance $150 million for a Major League Soccer stadium in the city, but the state legislature is being asked to support three measures for the project to ensue:
1. Property tax exemption for the 12-acre stadium site.
2. Sales tax exemption on construction materials for the stadium.
3. A liquor license for the stadium
