Public Stadium Authority

The Washington State Public Stadium Authority (PSA) was created by Referendum 48, a ballot initiative passed by voters authorizing use of public funds to build a Stadium and Exhibition Center.

The PSA’s mission is to represent the public’s interest in owning CenturyLink Field & Event Center and overseeing First & Goal Inc.’s operation of the facility for the benefit of all Washington state citizens.

First and Goal Inc. is proud of the public-private partnership forged with the PSA.  FGI continues to work closely with the PSA to ensure that the Stadium and Exhibition Center are an asset and symbol of pride to sports fans, event attendees, our residential and business neighbors and to all Washington state residents.
