This volume takes readers inside the high-stakes game of public-private partnerships for major league sports facilities, explaining
why some cities made better deals than others, assessing the best practices and common pitfalls in deal structuring and facility
leases, as well as highlighting important differences across markets, leagues, facility types, public actors, subsidy delivery
mechanisms, and urban development aspirations. It concludes with speculations about the next round of facility replacement
amidst rapid changes in broadcast technology, shrinking domestic audiences, and the globalization of sport.
