Investor Eyes Soccer Stadium for Haiti

Former Haiti soccer star Robert "Boby" Duval is putting together an ambitious plan to build a $5 million soccer stadium in Haiti’s impoverished Cite Soleil. The proposed stadium will seat 12,000 and will be called the Phoenix Stadium because Duval hopes it will rise from poverty into something much better

"Cite Soleil was destroyed way before the earthquake," said Duval, according to the Associated Press. "This stadium is going to clean up Cite Soleil. ... and I'm betting on it."
