Help bring MLS to St. Louis

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

St. Louis has a unique opportunity to bring Major League Soccer to St. Louis – while making critical improvements to the infrastructure and key services of our great city. There is a lot of work ahead of us, but momentum is building toward a positive and exciting result on April 4. Every vote will count and we need support like yours to make sure we move St. Louis forward in a way that only MLS can deliver! As a city resident, you can help shape the vision of St. Louis for generations to come! We ask for you vote of Yes on Propositions 1&2.
CYC strongly supports this effort to improve our city and grow the game of soccer in St. Louis!
There are two critical ballot measures that need our support. Proposition 1 calls for the expansion of Metrolink and provides critical funding for key city services and initiatives. Proposition 2 allocates business use tax revenue to help fund a Major League Soccer stadium on 20+ acres of vacant land in downtown St. Louis.
Proposition 2 provides the following for St. Louis:
• 400+ construction jobs
• 450+ permanent jobs
• $17 million in tax revenue to the City
• ZERO impact on City residents unless they visit the stadium (businesses fund the tax)
