Friday roundup: NM United owner still wants biggest USL subsidy ever, Bears owners levy gambling gripes, Coyotes arena could make planes crash

And now for the news that slipped through the cracks of the week:. Albuquerque and New Mexico United released the full terms of the stadium plan that residents will vote on in November, and it’s pretty what it looked like when first discussed last month: $50 million from the city, $8 million from the state, $10 million from team owner Peter Trevisani. The team will also pay $900,000 a year in rent and shared concessions revenue, which comes to maybe $12 million in present value, so we’re talking $46 million public, $22 million private, which would still be the biggest USL subsidy ever for the most expensive USL stadium ever. There’ll be a community benefits agreement, though, those always work out great!
