Downtown soccer stadium construction update coming Thursday


ST. LOUIS – Officials with St. Louis City SC are expected to release more details about the stadium project Thursday. The team shared photos on Wednesday of concrete being poured on the lower level of the stadium construction site.

One of the businesses located near the stadium site is Syberg’s on Market. The family-owned bar and restaurant has several locations in the St. Louis area.

“We are really looking forward to having all the construction done,” said Kirk Syberg, one of Syberg’s owners.

The Syberg’s location in St. Louis’ Downtown West neighborhood has faced the biggest challenge with sporting events canceled and many office workers staying home due to the pandemic.

“We’re waiting for the day that the soccer starts, the Cardinals get playing again, people can go to the stadium and go to the Enterprise Center,” Syberg said.

He believes the wait will be worth it once the NGA project and soccer stadium construction are completed. A highway exit from Interstate 64 will direct traffic to 22nd Street, which connects with Market Street. That change is part of the NGA project.

“We’re really excited,” said Syberg.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage.
