If you hate the idea so much, stop going to Busch Stadium.  Vote with your feet and wallet, or shut up and take it.

I remember seeing a soccer team from Stuttgart, Germany, play in old Busch, it was May of 1978....Don't remember who they played, I went with my older brother. I don't think it's the end of the world. I thought STL had a pro soccer team already, playing somewhere, maybe the Dome?

Soccer is a feminine endeavor for small stature men who would've died early in pre gun powder warfare. Enjoy lil' fellas

I like playing baseball because I'm in terrible physical shape. I like watching soccer because it's not boring.

I think it's amazing for the city. An international event in this town is great. The sport everyone played in St. Louis, but no one watches. More like it would be awesome.

LOL Saint Louis, you so dumb. From NPR story dated Tuesday May 21st

Groundskeeper Bill Findley says aside from being new, the conversion to a soccer pitch isn't the most stressful special event he's dealt with.

"It was definitely the U2 concert," he said. "Having to re-sod the whole field in the middle of July after a concert, then playing on the field three days later, two days later, and then having to go the rest of the season with that fresh sod that we put on the field in July."


Here is a story form NPR about converting the stadium to a soccer field: http://www.news.stlpublicradio.org/post/converting-st-louis-baseball-heaven-almost-proper-soccer-pitch

Someone said that that the Dome should be a home for the soccer players just for 1 day. I wouldn't mind that, but like I said, it's just for 1 DAY!!! It's ok. It's going to be back to normal after the soccer match it over. The Cardinals will be fine once they're gone. Us fans will be fine, don't worry.

My sport is better than your sport, booo! BOOOOOOO! But seriously, I think we just invent things to get offended about in this country, don't we?

People need to worry about other things in the world instead if what's going in a the stadium

St. Louis has a history with soccer. They should be hoping this gets us AC St Louis and the Athletica back, not hating on some moved grass.

St. Louis is lucky to have a European soccer match at Busch Stadium. Whether one likes soccer or not, it's a big deal which will put us once again in the national spotlight. Never mind the big bux the city will make in revenue. And for those whiners that are carping about defacing a baseball field, where was the outrage when Bono's monstrosity of a stage literally tore up the entire field? I dare say there will be thousands and thousands more people who are elated over this game than those whiners who don't.

If they can play soccer in Croke Park in Dublin, IE, they can play the sport anywhere. I am a baseball fan, but come on, really? This is only a game, and anyone who sees it more than that needs professional help.

Plus, the new stadium sucks anyway. A place needs to be holy to be desecrated. New Busch does not qualify.

Was the U2 concert blasphemous? Get real.

No, I think that we should have an MLS team playing regularly there until a soccer specific stadium is built!!
