A company call Global Development is working with the city of Tulsa to build a 40 acre MLS soccer stadium, retail and housing project in the East Village area of downtown around 6th and Elgin. This looks very real and has been rumored for some time, there is no official announcement as yet as the plan is already controversial due to the placement of another downtown “superblock” for the stadium. Public funding is likely to be in the type of TIF funds, so no vote will be needed. Tulsa may really well have a MLS team in the very near future.
