Republic FC Relies on Fan Feedback for Stadium Plans

Sacramento soccer franchise has built itself on community input

The young and successful Sacramento Republic FC aims to sink its roots as deep as the coveted grounds just east of the Sacramento River will allow, with a new stadium at the Railyards. The plan is that within a few years, the venue will open as a downtown centerpiece, and Major League Soccer will officially welcome the local franchise into the fold as an expansion team.
