The St. Louis Board of Al­der­men ap­proved a tax in­cen­tive pack­age to build a down­town soc­cer sta­dium. This is a sig­nif­i­cant step in the city’s ef­fort to have a pro­fes­sional fran­chise. The own­er­ship group, con­sist­ing of World-Wide Tech­nol­ogy CEO Jim Ka­vanaugh and the Tay­lor fam­ily, own­ers of rental car com­pany En­ter­prise, made their in­ten­tions clear back in Oc­to­ber of want­ing to at­tract an MLS fran­chise. The own­ers will cover most of the sta­dium cost, which is good for the cit­i­zens. MLS plans to award two more fran­chises, but as of yet no word on when or where.
