St. Louis Scores Major League Soccer Expansion Team For 2022 Season

St. Louis soon will be home to a top-tier professional soccer team. Major League Soccer officially awarded St. Louis an expansion team on Tuesday.

The team will begin play in 2022 in a new stadium to be built just west of Union Station. A team name has not been announced.

“It is with great pride that we welcome St. Louis to Major League Soccer,” league Commissioner Don Garber said Tuesday morning.

Garber’s announcement ends months of speculation about whether a local ownership group could secure a spot in the MLS plan to expand from 24 teams to 28 teams by 2022. The successful campaign follows years of failed efforts in St. Louis to join the top professional soccer league in the U.S. and Canada.
