What you should know for St. Louis CITY SC’s home opener

ST. LOUIS – If you’re planning on celebrating St. Louis CITY SC’s first home game this weekend, you’ll want to plan ahead. St. Louis CITY SC’s home game takes place on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the CITYPARK.

CITY SC made their official MLS debut last weekend with a 3-2 away win over Austin FC. This weekend is CITY SC’s second game in franchise history against Charlotte FC.

Tens of thousands are expected Saturday in downtown St. Louis where the CITY SC Opener, Arch Madness college basketball tournament and many watch parties are planned for both events.

To enjoy the soccer scene, keep the following considerations in mind.


Parking permits for designated lots in the St. Louis CITY SC District are sold out for the home opener, meaning you must park somewhere that involves a bit of walking or driving to the stadium.

One of the most ideal parking spots is Union Station, although it could fill up quickly as Arch Madness is also planned near the Enterprise Center. Other nearby parking options include the 409 South 15th Street, 360 South 18th Street, and 1211 Spruce Street lots.

Ballpark Village will be offering shuttles to and from CITYPARK on Saturday and other games this season, but fees apply. CITY SC outline a few other car parks that might require a bit of a walk.

For those wanting to avoid parking hassles, you can take the subway to the Union Station exit or arrange a ride to the Locust Street drop-off between 20th and 21st streets.

block party

St. Louis CITY SC will host its first CITY Block Party over a two-day period. Fans can enjoy the first part of the block party on Friday from 6 p.m. The next part is scheduled from 4 p.m. until just before kick-off on Saturday.
