It's been a great week for Football in St Louis, no matter your definition of that word! The Hawks are back in the 314. But I am more of a soccer dude.
Last Saturday, our brand new MLS club, St Louis CITY SC, played their first home game at the all new CITYPARK stadium in Downtown West, right by Union Station. The brand new 22,500 seat stadium is beautiful, and a great place to take in a game. Not a bad seat in the house!
And wow, what a win! CITY did a great job capitalizing on some big mistakes by Charlotte, and pulled off an incredible, come-from-behind, 3-1 win! And let me tell you, that crowd was electric! It tells me what we've known all along in ST Louis: This is a soccer town! Looking forward to seeing more CITY matches for years to come.
And now they are 3-0. What a great start.
