On Thursday, Mayor Darrell Steinberg and officials from Sacramento Republic FC announced a proposal to develop a new soccer stadium in the Railyards area. The plan featrues an incentive package from the city worth an estimated $33 million, which includes rebates on property taxes, waived fees and administrative costs.

The plan will be up for a vote during Tuesday’s city council meeting, where it is expected to pass because the benefits package doesn’t include cash payments. If approved, it will be a crucial step in Sacramento’s bid to be awarded an MLS professional soccer franchise.
