REPORT:Phil Murphy, Sky Blue Pull Out of Deal that Would Have Built Soccer Stadium in Environmentally Sensitive Wetland Area of Jackson

JACKSON-The Asbury Park Press today reported that Phil Murphy’s embattled women’s soccer club, Sky Blue FC is pulling out of the proposed Trophy Park complex that could be built around Prospertown Lake.

According to the report, Sky Blue President Tony Novo said, “Due to environmental concerns that have been brought to our attention, Sky Blue FC is withdrawing our support for the Trophy Park project application.”

The 200 acre project would clear land between two large bodies of water, including Prospertown Lake.

Residents have expressed environmental concerns and concerns over the increased traffic between Interstate 195 and Six Flags Great Adventure.

Despite the departure of Murphy’s Sky Blue soccer stadium, developer Alan Nau said the show will go on.  Nau is expected to testify before the Jackson Township Planning Board Monday night. That meeting takes place at town hall at 7:30 pm.

In that report, the Asbury Park Press said Murphy’s Sky Blue FC would join the nearby Adventure Sports & Entertainment complex, but developers for that project said Sky Blue is not involved in their complex either.
