SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Sacramento Republic FC officials announced Thursday morning that they’re beginning prep work at the Railyards for a new soccer stadium.

The work comes in tandem with their bid to bring a Major League Soccer team to Sacramento.

Thursday’s event was a “ground making,” as prep work for the new stadium starts.

New renderings of the stadium were also released on Thursday.

MLS will make a decision on which city gets a new expansion team later this year.

The Republic FC says construction of the new stadium should wrap by February of 2020.

  1. Good, maybe we’ll get a winning team in this town.
    Instead of loser garbage in purple jerseys…the Kings are going to stink again this year…and the next year, and the next…and so on.
    That’s why the Kings president Chris Granger left…even he could see no hope for this random band of rookies and 3rd-raters.
