sport finance consultant.
You have been hired by a large Midwestern city to serve as a sport finance consultant. The city has just been notified by the local Major League Baseball team that they are demanding a new stadium, or else they will look to relocate the franchise. The team is not being totally unreasonable, and promises to privately finance 25% of the $600 million projected cost of the new facility. The city would like your recommendations regarding public financing options for the balance of $450 million. What are the advantages/disadvantages of each option and which you would recommend for the city? Be very specific and be sure to research recent stadium financing to justify your recommendations.
