Currently, Texas has 3 different MLS stadium deals underway in the cities of Dallas, Houston, and Austin. Both Dallas and Houston have forked over money to build these stadiums, but Austin is in the process of creating a deal with Precourt that would have them financing the stadium, allowing the opportunity for the Columbus Crew to come down to Austin. Dallas is a sprawling area looking to get a lot of use out of their stadium, while Houston is a more under-utilized, high stress urban environment looking to revamp their atmosphere. Neither Dallas or Houston are paying property taxes since a municipality owns the stadium. As for Austin, their city council votes August 9th on an agreement for their stadium.
