Baltimore is eyeing Port Covington as one possible site for a proposed state-funded soccer stadium. The Maryland Stadium Authority on Tuesday approved a request from Mayor Brandon M. Scott to study the economic impact of a 10,000-seat stadium in the city. The analysis will not be location-specific, but Al Tyler, vice president of the authority’s capital projects development group, said Port Covington is “one potential site.” The complex would host an organization called Right To Dream as its main tenant, Tyler said. The group, which recruits talented young players to develop their skills, started as a small soccer academy in Ghana in 1999 and now also operates facilities in Egypt and Denmark.
