Portugal's Hangover

Portugal hosted Euro 2004, a fantastic tournament with a surprise winner in Greece. But as the financial crisis unfolds, some Portugese feel a tinge of regret over the expense involved. Not just the capital costs of building "seven modern stadiums from scratch" and renovating three others*, but also ongoing maintenance expenses: Second-division Beira Mar can’t afford the upkeep of a 30,000-seat, $94 million municipal stadium in Aveiro, while first-tier Uniao de Leiria doesn’t have enough revenue to maintain the city’s $120 million arena.

Cowboys Stadium Financing

This story from the Dallas Morning News has some good details on the public/private contributions to paying off the bonds which support the $1.2 billion Cowboys Stadium.  Both public and private revenues are exceeding projections. Judging from the article, the city of Arlington contributed $325 million in financing.  Their share of the bonds is paid "with proceeds from a half-cent sales tax increase, 2 percent hotel-motel tax hike and 5 percent increase in car rental tax."  Arlington owes $20.4 million this year, and is on track to recoup over $27 million from these taxes, according to the paper.  Leaving aside […]
