St. Louis has been the heartbeat of American soccer for years, dominating in club, high school, and college soccer. To this day, St. Louis University has the most NCAA Division I men's soccer national championship titles. Yet, in 1996, when Major League Soccer kicked off its inaugural season, there was no team to represent the Gateway to the West. How did this happen?
Author Shane Stay will guide the reader through St. Louis soccer's journey, from its past to the present, including the launch of St. Louis CITY SC. The story will start 100 years in the past and follow the major achievements-and setbacks-of St. Louis soccer.
The author will cover not only the history of soccer at the club, high school, college, and professional levels, but he will also outline local attractions for soccer fans and will even predict the future successes of St. Louis CITY SC.
