ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - With its most recent 4-0 win against Real Salt Lake, St. Louis CITY SC starts the MLS season with a perfect 5-0-0 record. The club joins the 1996 LA Galaxy team and the 2012 Sporting Kansas City team as the only clubs to have collected 15 points in their first five matches of a season in MLS history. And in case you forgot, St. Louis is the sole MLS expansion team to start an inaugural season with four straight wins.

This team has come onto the MLS scene and established itself as a potential powerhouse in the league. There is still much of the season left to be played, but what CITY SC has accomplished thus far is remarkable.

Here are some of the other notable achievements the club has made through this impressive, undefeated five-game streak:
