About the St. Louis Lions – The St. Louis Lions, the USL PDL team of St. Louis, would like to invite you to join us for our 9th and best season yet! Founded in 2006, The St Louis Lions provide an opportunity for top level, soccer players to be exposed to professional scouts throughout the United States and Internationally.
The team plays in the USL Premier Development League (PDL), the top developmental men’s league in North America. In 2013 the PDL featured 64 teams within four conferences throughout the United States and Canada. The PDL provides elite collegiate players the opportunity to taste a higher level of competition while maintaining their eligibility. In addition to league play, PDL teams compete in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup as well as various exhibitions.
The PDL has proven to be an important stepping-stone for top professionals now playing in the MLS and throughout the world. Over 70% of the players in the MLS are drafted from the PDL. The St. Louis Lions have been key in placing over 20 players into the professional ranks both domestic and internationally, inlcuding Lawrence Olum of Sporting KC, Tommy Heinemann, formerly of the Columbus Crew, Jamie Lovegrove of the Dallas Sidekicks and Mike Mesle and Kory Dowell of the St. Louis Ambush to name a few!
