Group asks City Council to put SoccerCity plan on November ballot

Push for'Soccer City vote in November

It looks like St. Louis will remain a two-sport town after voters defeated a measure that would have helped pay for a stadium as part of an effort to lure a Major League Soccer franchise.

St. Louis' newly elected mayor is promising to help the city reduce the sort of violent crime that devastated her own family two decades ago.

SCSTL said there is no Plan B to bring an MLS team to St. Louis.

St. Louis has two professional franchises, the baseball Cardinals and the NHL Blues.

In a statement released after the vote, MLS said "For many years we have believed that St. Louis would be a tremendous market for a Major League Soccer team, but the lack of a positive stadium vote is clearly a significant setback for the city's expansion opportunity and a loss for the community".

Proposition 2, which would have used about $50 million from an increase in business use tax revenue to subsidize the construction of an MLS stadium, won a majority of support in only eight of the city's 28 wards.

"We wish the outcome would have been different", Kavanaugh said. St. Louis was one of 12 cities to submit a bid for one of the four spots.

FS Investors said they would ask the San Diego City Council to place their proposal on a November 7 ballot rather than ask for outright approval of their development, which has been dubbed "SoccerCity".

The group proposed the development shortly after the NFL's Chargers announced they were relocating to the Los Angeles area.

FS Investors wants to buy the land at fair-market value (determined by a third-party) and hopes to convince San Diego State to use the stadium for its football team.
