St. Louis ownership group meets MLS commissioner to discuss expansion

#MLS4THELOU, a group working to bring a Major League Soccer team to St. Louis, is a step closer to its goal after it met with MLS Commissioner Don Garber, the group announced Monday on Twitter.

Led by Carolyn Kindle Betz, the group on Thursday met Garber and other MLS executives at league headquarters in New York to give an update on their ownership proposal.

The group says MLS continues to be interested in and supportive of the proposal, the St. Louis Business Journal reports.

Since the group announced its intent last October, #MLS4THELOU has worked Los Angeles-based architecture firm HOK to design a proposed stadium in St. Louis, the group says.

On Nov. 30, the St. Louis Board of Aldermen passed a resolution showing support for the proposed soccer team in the city. A bill, sponsored by state Rep. Justin Hill, R-Lake St. Louis, urges MLS to give “serious consideration” to the city’s bid for a team.
