St. Louis City SC has partnered with Elevate Sports Ventures to support the club in sponsorship, premium and ticket sales ahead of its expansion into the MLS.

The club is expected to be entered into America’s top division in 2023 and so St. Louis City has teamed up with the sports and entertainment consulting firm to help connect brands to the team and stadiums.

These offerings will include finding sponsors for team kits and also brands willing to be exposed across the club’s 22,500-seat Downtown West stadium, which is expected to be in construction later this year. 

Al Guido, Chairman of Elevate Sports Ventures, stated: “It is a special honor to represent St. Louis City SC and one of the most dynamic and dedicated ownership groups in professional sports today, under the vision of Carolyn Kindle Betz and her appointed leadership in industry veteran Dennis Moore.

“We are proud of the part Elevate has played and will continue to play in supporting MLS in a city with such a rich history in and love for soccer; this is the beginning of something extraordinary for the fans and brands in St. Louis.”

Throughout the duration of the partnership Elevate will also use its expertise and resources from its roster of founding partners to support premium and ticket sales, alongside sponsorship for the MLS side. This includes implementing its database management, analytics and ticket sales techniques, alongside proving data-driven fan insights.

Overseeing Elevate during the agreement will be St. Louis City SC’s Chief Revenue Officer, Dennis Moore

“Elevate is truly one of the best in the business when it comes to building the ticketing process, offerings and sponsors,” added Moore. “As we continue to prepare for our kickoff in 2023, the team at Elevate will play a key role in our success and we’re diligently working together to finalise essential details for season tickets. It’s amazing to think in just three years we’ll have a stadium filled with fans from all around the region.”
