City leaders say the stadium alone will have a $1.25 billion economic impact on the region.
The team is working toward an MLS bid. In early February a team including Mayor Darrell Steinberg, Republic FC leadership, and Burkle went to New York with a goal of bringing a major league soccer team to Sacramento.
There is no word on when construction will begin.
