Raleigh, NC – Americans for Prosperity-North Carolina (AFP-NC) today renewed its call to end stadium subsidies in the state as news surfaced of a potential $110 million taxpayer handout to support a future MLS franchise in Charlotte.
“Charlotte residents have strongly rejected stadium subsidies in the past and they won’t accept them now. This $110 million publicly funded charade would directly finance renovations for a private enterprise by utilizing taxpayer dollars set aside specifically to boost other priorities in our state,” said AFP-NC State Director Chris McCoy. “This business should be properly funded through its own means rather than rely on a $110 million handout from taxpayers. Most MLS teams have generous jersey sponsors, in this case, it shouldn’t be the Charlotte taxpayers.”
