ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The group trying to bring a Major League Soccer team to St. Louis officially submitted an application with the league Tuesday.

SC STL, the ownership group filed the documents with MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Deputy Commissioner Mark Abbott.

The St. Louis Board of Aldermen recently voted to put a proposal on the ballot, which, if approved by voters, would provide public money to fund part of the stadium. A judge must still give a final okay for the measure to go to city voters.

The MLS said it is looking to add four new teams by 2020.
