Real Salt Lake to Break Ground Today

Update of the story here.

It seems an email has gone out to the local media late last night telling them that there will be a groundbreaking ceremony today at noon.

However, there is a very odd part to this story as neither the MLS or Real Salt Lake web sites mention this event.

Anyway, expect to see David Beckham and a bunch of local politicians throwing some dirt over their shoulders. Who knows, maybe it will make the national sports news.

No terms of the deal were mentioned in the email. The new site will be in Sandy near the South Towne Expo Center. This site is about 15-miles from their current home in Rice-Eccles Stadium.

As with all things related to this stadium deal, Are You Loyal? has the latest.

Interestingly enough, in a Truman loses type moment, the Daily Herald, or 'Central Utah's Newspaper', ran a story yesterday letting soccer fans know they should enjoy today's Real Madrid vs. Real Salt Lake game as it might be one of the last.

Don't forget the US Soccer Carnival part IV.
