Fairpark Board Supports Dell Loy Hansen's Soccer Stadium Plan

Press Release

September 3, 2014

Salt Lake City – The Utah State Fairpark Board Chair Roger Beattie and Vice-Chair Lowell S. Peterson, have announced they will seek unanimous approval from the board to begin negotiations with Real Salt Lake and its owner Dell Loy Hansen on a new 8,000-seat stadium to be added to the 36 buildings currently on the fairpark campus. The new stadium would become the home field for Real Salt Lake’s minor league (USL) affiliate.

Previously, Hansen proposed to form a public/private partnership to construct the stadium, but in an effort to expedite the stadium’s development, he has proposed paying the entire cost of construction, which is currently estimated at $13 to $18 million.

“The Utah State Fairpark board of directors is thrilled to receive Mr. Hansen’s offer,” Beattie said.

“The only major hurdle to constructing the stadium is for the state to extend the lease on the Fairpark,” Peterson said. “The stadium would be a huge step forward in revitalizing the entire Fairpark. The goal is to have the stadium completed for the 2016 season.”

Hansen is scheduled to meet with the fairpark board of directors  Sept. 10 at 2 p.m. to discuss RSL’s vision for the stadium.
