Can anybody help provide quotes from professionals in any capacity who have said that a city-based stadium is better?

Quotes like this:

Quote:
"City stadiums create a wonderful atmosphere…. and it’s a great sense of occasion
much more so I think than it will be when the new Wembley stadium opens because
Wembley is in a suburb rather than a city centre"

Peter Hain, Secretary of State speaking about the Millenium Stadium



Quote:
“New stadiums are advancing the cause of community regeneration...Whereas
stadiums used to be seen as dull concrete bowls, developers, communities, and
central and local authorities see them as catalysts for regeneration and renewal”.

Rod Sheard, senior principal of leading stadium architects HOK Sport (2007).


Quote:
Stadiums should be plugged into the transport network at the centre of our cities,

Rod Sheard, senior principal of leading stadium architects HOK Sport (2007).


Quote:
“Architects are increasingly incorporating environmental and social incentives into
their plans as stadiums become the focus of local communities rather than being
pushed to the outskirts of towns only to be used in season”.

Rod Sheard, senior principal of leading stadium architects HOK Sport (2007)


Quote:
‘..it needs to be sited where there are good transport links and the infrastructure is
there to support it….. when the politicians, architects and lawyers move on it’s the
buying public who will vote with their feet……there has been a move across the
world to bring stadiums back into city centres’

Paul Sargeant Former Chief Executive Millennium Stadium Cardiff now General Manager of Sun Corp Stadium Brisbane February 2007

Tons of quotes in here:
http://www.belfastcity.gov.uk/news/stadiumreport.pdf -

some examples:
In-town location: The research found overwhelming support for in-town sites
as the most advantageous location for multi-purpose sports stadiums. The
evidence stems from the worldwide body of knowledge and in addition, the
vast majority of Northern Ireland stakeholders consulted expressed strong
support for a city centre location. The research found limited support for an
out-of-town location.

“While it was serviced by a major freeway, Waverley Park was too far from
Melbourne City Business Centre and lacked sufficient public transport and parking.
As it aged, its limitations also became increasingly apparent. The ground itself was
very large and spectators felt distant from the game”
(Wikipedia.org/wiki/Waverley_Park)
