Today, the City of St. Louis Board of Aldermen approved Resolution 180, which shows the MLS support for a potential soccer team in St. Louis. 

Board of Aldermen President Lewis Reed released the following statement following the passage of the resolution:


“It is an exciting day for St. Louis. Today, the City showed the MLS that we are ready for soccer to come to town. We couldn’t be more thankful and grateful for the Taylor and Kavanaugh families for this investment in the future of our City. Thank you to my colleagues at the Board of Aldermen for their thoughtful deliberation and support of this project. 

If we want to address the issues of public safety, housing, infrastructure and more, we need to boost our economy. This is one way to do it. 

I look forward to the future of this project and the future of this City.”
