What They're Saying: Victor Matheson

“Every other team in the league, when they’re balancing the cost of a new stadium, they’re looking at all the revenue they’re going to make at it. The Revolution are looking at the cost, minus what they already make at Gillette. That piece is what makes it impossible, economically.”<br="">

-- Victor Matheson, a Holy Cross professor of economics, on the financial challenges the New England Revolution faces in seeking its own stadium. Currently, it plays at Gillette Stadium, where its owner, the Kraft Sports Group, already keeps the revenue from concessions, merchandise sales and luxury boxes. Despite that equation, the Revs remain committed to finding an accessible soccer home. (Boston Globe)
