This week, the City of St. Louis Board of Aldermen will consider a revised bill to provide funding for a new riverfront football stadium. The National Football League owners are set to likely decide in January which team(s) will move to Los Angeles. The league and some owners have stated that St. Louis must have public funding, it’s share of the proposed $1B stadium in place before the January vote. Currently, public funds from the city and state would total near $400M, with $200 from the NFL, $250M from a team owner, and $160M from the sale of personal seat licenses.
