End sports welfare

17.3 Billion Since 1990

From 1990 to 2003 there were 66 major construction and renovation projects for professional sports stadiums and arenas in the United States, costing $17.3 billion, according to the League of Fans, a sports welfare watchdog group founded by Ralph Nader. Sixty percent of the funding, an estimated $10.3 billion, came from the public purse.
