FIU just built a new on-campus stadium that isn't eactly "state-of-the-art," but does include some amenities like a club, and will include some skyboxes in the future.
The total cost is estimated at $80 million.
Meanwhile, in both Indy and Dallas, they're building new stadiums that are showpieces. The cost? North of $1 billion dollars.
So, how is it that it costs more than 12 times as much to build something "nice" as opposed to something "functional" ???
They do serve the same purpose, don't they?
