The San Antonio Scorpions along with their home stadium Toyota Field are close to being sold, according to the San Antonio Soccer Examiner’s Chris Hockman.
According to the website, a source has stated that Bexar County have made a new offer with 20-30% increase to own Toyota Field. However, the county has a clause in their agreement that prevents them from owning any venue that competes with Spurs Sports and Entertainment.
It is understood that SS&E are pushing to get a soccer team and are working on a deal with Scorpions owner Gordon Hartman, but the process seems to have slowed down. According to the website, sources say SS&E has stated they will have a soccer team in the next two years, regardless what happens with the Scorpions.
It is no secret the Spurs have had long interest in the United Soccer League with the hope of moving to Major League Soccer in the future. The problem is if Hartman decides not to sell, it could see San Antonio with two soccer clubs.
The other time a two team city happened was with Oklahoma City and it led to one of their soccer clubs folding. Expect more in the coming weeks as the Scorpions get ready to finish the final month of the 2015 season.
