Major League Soccer Stadium Plan Approved By St. Louis Board Of Aldermen
A plan to build a stadium for a proposed Major League Soccer team in St. Louis is now backed by the Board of Aldermen.
The board voted 26-2 to approve a tax incentive plan to build a stadium, giving the group working to bring MLS to St. Louis a better foundation to convince the league to make the city home to one of its pending expansion teams.
The group, led by Jim Kavanaugh and members of the family that own and operate the Enterprise Holdings corporation, hope to have a full application to the league within the next month.
Friday's vote provides the groundwork to build a stadium in downtown St. Louis next to Union Station.
