Construction of the new soccer stadium for Rhode Island FC at Pawtucket’s Tidewater Landing site is moving forward despite a delay in issuing $27m worth of public bonds to help pay for the project. It has been revealed that the project’s developer, Fortuitous Partners, has not yet finished raising its share of the funds for the $124m stadium. The mayor of Pawtucket, Donald Grebien, has said Fortuitous is confident it will reach its goal, though spokesperson Mike Raia declined to reveal how much more the company needs to raise or how long it may take. Last week, Rhode Island FC informed season ticket depositors that they are looking at alternatives to start their first season, but president Brett Luy is adamant that the new stadium will still open next year.
