Landon Donovan is a former Major League Soccer player for the LA Galaxy working to pass Measure E; the “Soccer City” initiative in San Diego.
Soccer City is a privately funded initiative to help bring a new MLS team to San Diego and redevelop the stadium site in Mission Valley into a sport entertainment hub for all to enjoy.
Landon explains the differences between Measure E and the opposition on the ballot for the November 6th vote.
Soccer City will be home to a youth soccer academy that gives opportunities to talented underprivileged youth athletes around San Diego.
Landon elaborates on the $50 million dollar traffic mitigation plan for Soccer City and the benefit it will have on the Mission Valley area.
