SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Real Salt Lake isn't giving up the idea of building a soccer stadium in downtown Salt Lake City.

Real spokesman Josh Ewing said the team has hired real estate brokers to look for land downtown, in Sandy and other places.

Ewing said hiring brokers suggests that maybe the team's owner isn't ready to give up a downtown location yet.

Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson had wanted to build a stadium downtown, but land he looked at proved too expensive. He's now pushing for a venue in the state-owned Utah State Fairpark, where land would be free.

Real has expected the public to buy the land and subsidize half the projected 60 to 65 (M)million dollars in construction costs.

Anderson will present the Fairpark plan today to Salt Lake County lawmakers.
