A little mid-day stadium porn for you. And believe me some MLS teams would love to have this stadium right now.

The Maryland Stadium Authority approved a $100,000 study on Tuesday to explore the viability of building a professional soccer stadium in Baltimore. Both DC United and the USSF Division II’s Crystal Palace Baltimore are being looked at in this study.

The renderings though are for CP Baltimore. A cozy little venue with a roof over all the seats with one end open for probably a party deck of some sorts. I like it…a lot.

    Which MLS teams would love to have this stadium “right now?” DC, obviously. Which others?

    Chicago no, Chivas USA no, Colorado no, Columbus probably not, Dallas no, Houston probably not considering how close they are to getting a better one, Kansas City not now that they've broken ground on theirs, Los Angeles no, New England unlikely even though Gillette is too big (though their fans would probably prefer this), New York no, Philadelphia no, Salt Lake no, San Jose yes, Seattle no, Toronto no, Portland no now that they've got the go-ahead to renovate PGE, Vancouver no.

    So, DC and San Jose.

  • You pretty much answered it right there with those two. Though moving forward a team like Chivas definitely needs their own place. And yes New England does as well.

    When I wrote that I had those four in mind.
