You should listen to the entire interview: http://www.mlssoccer.com/extratime A few quick bits of news. First, Smith suggested that the stadium plans are all now approved. Second, it sounds like the team will begin the season with an extended road trip while the stadium is completed. Third, and most interesting, he stated directly that MLS was involved in the decision to build the new modular stadium. MLS didn't want this team to play in a college football stadium. MLS wanted the team in a real soccer venue. As I said on MLSN&A, I think the league's involvement in the decision to build a new stadium at Cal Expo is probably the first concrete indication we've seen that MLS has a genuine interest in Sacramento as an expansion candidate.
