The injury report for St louis CITY SC isn’t good.
Striker Joao Klauss has now been out for two months, and will be out another four weeks with his quad injury. And midfielder Eduard Lowen, who missed his first game of the season on Saturday because of a quad injury, will miss four to six weeks. The team could look to the transfer market for help, but that window doesn’t open until July 5. So any player picked up there would be available for at the most three league games before the break, and when the break is over, Lowen and Klauss are expected to be back.

There’s a great article on this on stltoday.com How much do you think the XFL made this last year under the new owners? Well, we know that the Battlehawks led the XFL in attendance and television ratings, but that didn’t keep the league from reportedly losing about $60 million this year. But Forbes said that the XFL projects it will have $100 million in revenue next season.
“This is not just an endeavor that’s going to fill up a portfolio and one day we flip it and we’re out,” Johnson told Forbes. “This is legacy. This is the long game.” In addition to St. Louis, this year’s version of the XFL had teams in Washington, D.C., Seattle, Las Vegas, Houston, San Antonio, Orlando and Arlington, Texas. Average attendance ranged from 35,104 in St. Louis to 6,028 in Vegas. Orlando also averaged less than 10,000 fans (6,028).
The Battlehawks’ five games accounted for the five most-attended contests across the league and more than doubled the 14,983 that runner-up Seattle attracted. So a logical next move for the XFL would seem to be to try to enter other markets such as St. Louis that the NFL has abandoned in recent years (San Diego and Oakland). XFL lost about $60 million in first year under new ownership, according to reports: Media Views (stltoday.com) – LINK
