So what is the mission for Gateway United in 2012. What changes can be made to turn a playoff club into a championship club? In a recent interview with the clubs captain, Landon Donovan, the response was simply to wait and see. The offseason can be full of surprises, but one thing is for sure, the mindset is always to finish with a championship. "Winning isn't everything. It's the only thing" said the Saints owner. "At some point the breaks have to go our way when it counts. This club needs to build a roster that can withstand injuries and is deep enough to score 4 to 5 points every single week even when key players are missing for National Team duties." The objective is clear. This club needs a star above its crest.
After observing the stadiums around the BSL, it was time for Gateway United to have its own Soccer Specific Stadium as well. "Playing in Money Bomb Stadium has been nice for the past 3 years, but the time has come to enter into a new phase. Opening in 2012 will be Saints Stadium. The state of the art facility will have a seating capacity of 37,600. "Its still going to be larger than Union H20 Park (18,000), Suns Stadium (22,701), and Alliance Park (19,900), but will offer the same great views" said the Gateway United owner.
