If Sacramento is going to get an MLS franchise, a new stadium would have to be built. So, where would it go?

What does an MLS approved soccer stadium have to have?  

The requirements include five to seven acres of land, a central location, access to public transit and proximity to bars and restaurants.

Those requirements could be met by the old railyard next to Downtown Sacramento, and the property's developer, Larry Kelly, tells the Sac Business Journal he likes that idea.

Reportedly, other options are Sutter's Landing Park and the parking area next to Raley Field in West Sac.  

With the a site a top priority for attracting the MLS to Sacramento, area business and government leaders are looking into the various options now.
