St Louis MLS stadium plans revealed

St Louis MLS stadium plans revealed

Tuesday 30th April 2019

The American MLS has announced plans to expand to 30 teams and St Louis has wasted no time at all throwing their hat into the ring with plans to build a new stadium.

The stadium would be located on the regenerated Downtown West area of the city and would seat between 22,000 and 25,000 spectators.

Uniquely, the pitch would be sunk 40-feet below street level which would allow for steep stands giving a close view of the action - the aim being that no seat will be more than 120 feet from the pitch, with the closest being just 20 feet from the action.
