ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - In 17 days we'll get to see the name, colors and crest of St. Louis' first MLS franchise. There were thousands of options for the ownership group to chose from after opening an online submission form for fans to give input. Of the more than 5,000 entries there were a few that apparently didn't make the cut, but are giving local soccer fans a good laugh.
But did they make a big mistake in not going with Lazer Snakes? A lot of social media commenters believe so:
One Twitter user said: "Lazer Snakes or we riot!!!"
MLS4ThLou will announce the name, colors and crest virtually on August 13.
Earlier this month, MLS pushed back the timeline for the inaugural seasons of three of the four expansion clubs: St. Louis, Charlotte and Sacramento. St. Louis will begin play in 2023, not 2022 as originally planned.
