One of the considerations for MLS selection is a venue. The Sons of Ben are circulating a petition to the Pennsylvania Congress to establish the Chester waterfront as a stadium site. The stadium will be part of a larger effort to help stimulate Chester’s chronically depressed economy and address the city’s high unemployment rate. The stadium will also be used for professional women’s soccer in 2008, as well as professional outdoor lacrosse in 2009.
