Jacksonville Armada owner seeks to build new stadium in Jacksonville

Owner Robert Palmer said there isn't a set location right now and that the team is currently looking to buy land.

The owner of the Jacksonville Armada announced Tuesday that he is seeking to build a new stadium for the soccer team in Jacksonville.

Owner Robert Palmer made the announcement at the kickoff at the Armada Business Alliance. He said has both the funding and designs in place, they are just looking for a location to buy land.

He said he also hopes he can work with the Jacksonville business community so the stadium could benefit the city, especially when it comes to jobs.

"If there's somewhere I can put this building to have a bigger impact on this community, if there's somewhere I don't know, that I'm not thinking about, that can have a serious impact on the Jacksonville market, I want to make sure we explore that before we break ground," Palmer said. "If we can create more jobs in Jacksonville, well that's exciting to me as well."

Once they buy the land, he said the stadium plans to be called HomeValue.com stadium. Palmer currently owns HomeValue.com.
