I would think that St. Louis is a considerably superior Soccer city to Kansas City (as Kansas City is a superior American football city to St. Louis). I'm sure an STL MLS team would be a great success, whether it plays in STL City, County or Metro East.

Does anyone remember when Pele came with the NY Cosmos to Busch Memorial Stadium to play the St. Louis Stars?

this is based on what? aren't you afraid to pontificate like that? I keep hearing St. Louis is the soccer capital of america and I've yet to see why.

The Hill produced a few italian-immigrant players half a century ago and this seems to be St. Louis' claim to fame as far as soccer goes.

I don't see any evidence St. Louis would support an MLS team. I don't see people going to WPS games USL games and the KC match this past weekend had a turn out of 5200 in a 6000 seat venue.

Children player soccer all over the united states, it really isn't unique to St. Louis and I wish people would quit acting like it is.

I would not support it. I just never got into soccer, and can't stand watching it. But if it comes here, I do hope it is successful for the fans that do like it. I'm a hockey junky, but I know not everyone likes hockey either.
