A coalition of business, hospitality leaders and a professional soccer league are again asking Spokane Public Schools to consider building the new Joe Albi Stadium downtown. Business and hospitality groups have been advocating that a new stadium be built downtown for years. They argue it would be a boon for business and attract professional sports teams. Voters were asked if they wanted a stadium downtown, or at the current Joe Albi site in 2018. About 64% voted no.
