Stadium Task Force Held Rally To Update Fans

St. Louis, MO (KTRS)  Plans for a new NFL stadium and keeping the Rams in St. Louis seem promising.

That was the message from the stadium task force and Mayor Francis Slay who held a rally Thursday night before the Rams-Chiefs game to update the fans on the progress. About two hundred fans were present to cheer on these efforts

While specifics weren’t revealed, Slay told fans that he’s confident these efforts will succeed. “Believe me. We’re going to need your help. We’re going to need your support. I love hearing your voices. This is something great we’re going to make happen because of all of you. You’ve got my word. We’re going to see a new stadium in downtown and we’re going to see the Rams playing and winning football games here.”

Dave Peacock told fans that he believes this plan will become a reality.“Great cities, great communities build. They don’t stand still, they don’t shrink, and they don’t quit. We are inspired by you, we are inspired to never back down, to never quit.” Peacock added “I had the pleasure to be with the governor in the commissioners’ office in New York yesterday and we’re going to continue to fight for our city, fight for our team, and fight for our football, and fight for our fans.”

Peacock also stressed that fan support is crucial for these goals to prevail. “We feel very good about the public support we’re getting. I think the more the public comes out and demonstrates that they’re aren’t going to back down and they’re not going to let their city shrink, and not let assets like this leave their city.”

Peacock said the next step is going to the St. Louis Board of Aldermen this month to get feedback on their Brownfield tax credits.

Not everyone shared in this enthusiasm. A small group gathered near the rally to protest the proposed stadium.
