It’s time to paint the CITY Red for the Audi 2023 MLS Cup Playoffs. Western Conference Regular-Season Champion St. Louis CITY SC invites the region to join CITY SC’s players as they gear up for the club’s playoff debut with a party for all ages on Lou Fusz Plaza (located on the eastern side of CITYPARK), Sunday, October 22 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. Purina is the club's presenting sponsor of the Audi 2023 MLS Cup Playoffs.

A chance for fans to rally around the team prior to playoffs, the launch party will celebrate the club’s historic inaugural season and feature remarks from St. Louis CITY SC CEO Carolyn Kindle, Sporting Director Lutz Pfannenstiel, Head Coach Bradley Carnell and players as they recount their journey as one of the most successful expansion teams in Major League Soccer history and look ahead toward Round One of the playoffs.

“Our inaugural season has been nothing short of incredible, and as we shift our focus to the post-season, we are calling everyone in the St. Louis region to join us on October 22 to celebrate our team and start painting the CITY Red as we kick off our quest for the MLS Cup!” said Carolyn Kindle, St. Louis CITY SC’s CEO.

At the party, CITY SC will drop official club-designed playoff merchandise for fans to wear to help turn the CITY Red. Fans can also enjoy live DJ entertainment, games and activities, food and drinks, giveaways, and pick up a free "All for CITY” 2023 playoffs sign.


As previously announced, CITYPARK could host up to two Round One (a Best-of-3 series) matches, with the first expected to be played October 29, 30, 31 or November 1. The Round One Best-of-3 series schedule will be finalized upon the release of the full Audi 2023 MLS Cup Playoff schedule. With CITY SC winning the regular-season conference title, St. Louis earned the top seed and will face off against the winner of the Audi MLS Cup Playoff Wild Card match that features the eighth and ninth seed in the West.

While tickets for Match One are sold out through the club, fans who do not have tickets can take part in the matchday experience with the pre-match CITY Block Party. A free, pet friendly Watch Party on Lou Fusz Plaza, presented by Purina, will follow, where fans and their furry friends can see CITY SC battle for the MLS Cup from the big screen on the plaza. (Tickets are not required to attend the Watch Party.)

Playoff strips, which were offered to Season Ticket Holders and myCITY+ members, are also sold out, with 95% of Season Ticket Holders opting to secure their seats for all playoff matches through Right of First Refusals and myCITY+ members selling out their playoff strips allotment in 30 minutes. Fans can check for re-sale tickets at www.seatgeek.com.

Additional playoff initiatives and activities at CITYPARK and throughout the region will be shared soon.
