MLS commissioner visits St. Louis to support stadium tax vote

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber will make a St. Louis appearance at two events Monday. The first event, at Ballpark Village, is designed to rally support for a plan to bring soccer to St. Louis just days before a crucial vote. It's scheduled for 5:15 p.m.

St. Louis City voters will head to the polls to decide the fate of two propositions. The vote will determine whether public money will be used to help fund the construction of a new soccer stadium.

MLS has never guaranteed St. Louis will be an expansion city. They've given indications St. Louis is at the top of the league’s expansion wish list.

Commissioner Garber will also hold a press conference at 2:30 p.m. in downtown St. Louis with Paul Edgerely, Chairman of SC STL, the local ownership group that’s pushing for stadium in downtown St. Louis and a expansion team for the city.
