The Cal Expo Board of Directors decided to move forward on a proposal to build a soccer stadium on the California State Fair grounds Thursday.
A final agreement will be voted on Dec. 13.
According to the Sacramento Republic FC, Ovations Food Service would build and own the facility. The 8,000-seat stadium, described as a multi-use facility with a full pitch for soccer, is said to be only temporary.

The stadium would be paid for through private funding, Sac Republic said.
The club plans on eventually building a more permanent facility
