ST. LOUIS — On Saturday, MLS4TheLou released some brand new renderings of the proposed Major League Soccer stadium in downtown St. Louis.

The stadium is expected to have a seating capacity of around 22,500 to 25,500.

The release of these renderings comes just days after the MLS announced they would be expanding the league to 30 teams, giving St. Louis even greater odds of landing a franchise.
