Get MLS to St. Louis

This petition had 146 supporters


There was a recent election to decide whether or not use taxes on business in St. Louis would help fund the construction of a soccer stadium. This was shot down unfortunately by city voters. The problem with this was that an overwhelmingly large number of people who supported this proposition couldn't vote because they didn't live in the city which means the results don't accurately represent the metropolitan area of St. Louis by any means at all.These results were heartbreaking to everyone who supported this because we knew the deal we got was amazing but we couldn't vote because of how elections are structured in our city where only the city residents vote on matters instead of the entire area. I've been a soccer player my whole life and almost everyone I know were soccer players at some point in their lives. They all knew the significance of this and did their best to support it. 30,000 people who voted no to the proposition do not represent an area of well over that number who are in support of a soccer team

What I would want to accomplish from this petition is to show that St. Louis does want MLS in our city and that you come back and give us another chance to prove our love for the sport and to maybe build the stadium in the county or in a different area like Chesterfield instead of downtown
