Updated 17 June 2015 after the Louligan’s debut at Sporting Park during the 4th Round US Open Cup match between Saint Louis FC and Sporting Kansas City. The video below of the live stream offers an idea of the relentless volume the group brought to the match. Listen for “We Can’t Hear You”. I was between the Louligan’s and the South Stand capo box shooting the game and there was no comparison.
A Louligan is anyone willing to support St. Louis soccer. We love what we’ve got and want to build it to the best we can!
From the SaintLouligans.com website – The St. Louligans were formed during the one (and only) season of AC St. Louis. You might remember them, the NASL franchise that played at Soccer Park in Fenton before the money went away and the team folded. Well, the Louligans were the crazy people in Section 20 in the corner. Originally there were 7 different supporter groups and we loosely organized under the umbrella of the St. Louligans. Once AC (and Athletica) folded, many of us weren’t ready to quit going to games and having fun. We switched our allegiance to the St. Louis Lions of the USL-PDL as the highest level of outdoor soccer we had left. We dropped the individual supporter groups and just became the St. Louligans. We encourage everyone to support St. Louis Soccer at all levels. High School, College, and above.
