Should be good, it'll be nice to have another mid-west team.

Initial Reports from the meeting indicate that the pre-annexation agreement to build the stadium has passed 4-1.

The ball is now on your pitch, MLS

They should just move the Kansas City Wizards to St Louis since playing at Arrowhead is a joke and i have not heard anything about them building a new stadium for the future. This way MLS gets a new stadium in a new market and the fans won't have to suffer win an expansion team like in Toronto. Just look how well it worked out for Houston when they got the Earthquakes.

I don't think they will give us the Wizards. The reason being, a STL MLS team would benefit the Kansas City Wizards, as it would serve as an instant rival, and perhaps boost the local support in KC.

I think that when Philadelphia gets a team, it will be the KC team, but for now the MLS is going to try it this way
