GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – The Greenville County Finance Committee voted against a Triumph stadium in a 3-2 vote Monday evening.
The Greenville Triumph’s plans called for a 8,100-seat stadium at the BridgeWay Station development along Interstate 385 in Mauldin.
We previously reported that the Greenville County Council Finance Committee met in January to take up a resolution called “Project Kick.”
During that meeting, the committee voted to hold off on making a decision until they received more details on the project’s financing.
However, on Monday the finance committee did not authorize the county administrator to enter discussions with the other parties to discuss potential options.
“We did not have the bonding capacity to fund the $38 million without raising taxes,” said Greenville County Council and Finance Committee Member.
When asked if this vote kills the project all together, Mauldin Mayor Terry Merritt said, “[It’s] too early to know. Hopefully, there is potential to continue finding methods of discussions”
Fant said the finance committee may consider a scaled back project at another location.
In their first three seasons, the Triumph have played their games at Legacy Early Collegiate in a temporary stadium.
