ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis is back in the hunt for a Major League Soccer expansion franchise after the family behind rental car company Enterprise Holdings announced a bid that calls for a new stadium built mostly with private funding.
Members of the Taylor family said Tuesday that the franchise would be majority-owned by women, a first in MLS and a rarity in professional sports. The group also includes Jim Kavanaugh of St. Louis-based World Wide Technology.
St. Louis hopes to become a three-sport town for the first time since the NFL's Rams left for Los Angeles in 2016.
The Taylors are seeking tax breaks but no other public funding for a downtown stadium.
