St Louis confirmed as newest MLS expansion team

St Louis confirmed as newest MLS expansion team

Tuesday 20th August 2019

St Louis has officially been named as the next MLS expansion team. The club will become the 28th member of MLS in 2022 after Inter Miami and Nashville join the league in 2020 and Austin FC in 2021.

The new St Louis team will play in a brand new 22,500 capacity stadium. The team name, colours and crest will be confirmed in due course. The club has paid a cool $200m to join the league.

It’s a much-needed coup for the city of St Louis who lost the Rams NFL franchise to Los Angeles in 2016.

Confusingly, this will be an entirely different team to the current St Louis FC who play in the USL Championship. Only in America
