Look at the Alouettes they were about to go bankrupt again drawing like 8,000 average in 1997 at the big o. In 1998 they went to Percival and it immediately doubled to 16,000.

Now the key is there needs to be some significant private money to push for the stadium/team, I think some investors would need to put up at least 100$ million for a share of stadium construction it before the city/province look to get involved.
First off, football in the Big O is terrible compared to baseball.

Secondly, why do you want the government to get involved at all? If the MLB can come back to Montreal, it better be without government money.
