Abstract

Supporters of sports stadium construction often defend taxpayer subsidies for stadiums by suggesting that sports infrastructure can serve as an anchor for local economic redevelopment. Have such promises of economic rejuvenation been realized ? The City of Chicago provides an interesting case study on how a new stadium, U.S. Cellular Field, has been integrated into its south-side neighbourhood in a way that may well have limited local economic activity. This economic outcome stands in stark contrast to Wrigley Field in northern Chicago which continues to experience a synergistic commercial relationship with its neighbourhood. - (IfL)
