TWIB: Jonathan Kraft on Possible Revolution Stadium

(This Week In Business) - New England Patriots President Jonathan Kraft hints that there may be a smaller soccer stadium built for the Revolution.

"At the end of the day when you've got 15,000 people in a 70,000 seat building, you don't have the energy that you get in a 20,000 seat building, and I think the scale of those buildings, which have really led to this growth, work in a city, too," he said. "They don't impact the surrounding areas the way a football stadium would, so we're hopeful that we'll be able to do that."

He said that ever since the MLS started attracting popular British players and brought popular American players back, the quality of play is getting very close to the top levels of the European leagues.

When asked about more details into a potential new soccer stadium, he said, "We're working with various people, and I learned my lesson a long time ago, as Paul knows, when there's something to talk about, we'll talk about it."
