Gov. Pritzker Not in Support of State Funding for Sox Move


It appears that another pro sports team in Chicago could be thinking about a move and a new stadium. A report in the Chicago Sun Times says the White Sox are exploring building on a large empty parcel south of the Chicago Loop. Governor JB Pritzker says no matter if its’ the Sox or Bears he believes that the public shouldn’t be funding construction of stadiums.

The White Sox current stadium was publicly financed with a bill backed by then Republican Governor Jim Thompson. The stadium opened in 1991.
