MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER
STADIUM PROPOSAL CLEARS MAJOR STEP: A proposal for new soccer stadium for St. Louis cleared a major hurdle on Wednesday when the Housing, Urban Development and Zoning committee of the St. Louis Board of Aldermen voted 8-0 to endorse a resolution supporting the stadium proposal.
The resolution now goes to the full Board, which could vote on it as early as Friday.
The resolution contains tax incentives already agreed upon by the team’s ownership group and the City of St. Louis. The construction of the stadium will be fully financed by the Taylor family of Enterprise Leasing and Jim Kavanaugh, president of World Wide Technologies, Inc.
The ownership group is competing for a MLS expansion franchise that would begin play in the 2022 season. Kavanaugh is the president and CEO of the area’s current pro soccer team, Saint Louis Football Club, who play in the United Soccer League Championship.
