With the league and the Playersâ€™ Union still failing to come to terms on the agreement, Philadelphiaâ€™s debut season is full of uncertainty but chief Nick Sakiewicz is confident things will work out.
â€śIâ€™m confident the league office will handle it properly,â€ť Sakiewicz said. â€śIâ€™m not in the middle of any it.â€ť
As for something that is certain, the Unionâ€™s new arena, PPL Park, is well on the way and there is a buzz of excitement around the place according to the boss.
â€śThis structure is coming to fruition and the dream is alive,â€ť said Sakiewicz. â€śAs you can see, this will be a world-class athletic venue.
â€śI went down to training camp to get a pulse of their (players) thoughts. Some players had been uprooted from places, but every player in this organization is excited to play in this stadium.
â€śSoccer in this country has been growing and simmering beneath the surface,â€ť the Union CEO said. â€śWith stadiums like these, itâ€™s beginning to explode.â€ť
