ST. CHARLES, Mo. - Minor league teams St. Louis Ambush Indoor Soccer, St. Louis Attack Indoor Football and St. Charles Chill Hockey have two things in common, they’ll all play at the Family Arena and they’ve all chosen Mercy as their Official Medical Provider.
The Ambush, presented by Simmons First National Bank, is a Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) expansion franchise scheduled for its first game Nov. 22. The Attack is part of the new X-League with the season beginning in the spring. Both are part of Missouri Sports Holdings.
“We’re confident that Mercy will provide excellent health care to our teams as they have to our community for decades,” said Andrew Haines, managing member of Missouri Sports Holdings.
The Chill, part of the Central Hockey League, drops the puck for the first game on Oct. 19. As a way to give back to the community Mercy and the Chill are providing free tickets to the inaugural game to St. Louis area youth hockey leagues.
“It's an honor and privilege to partner with Mercy, an organization that shares our goal of giving back to our community,” said Patrick Armstrong, executive vice president, St. Charles Chill. “Knowing the care of our players and employees is in the hands of the great Mercy team allows us to focus on the game.”
“Offering these teams the expertise of Mercy doctors not only provides them great medical care, but will keep their players in the game for the community to enjoy,” said Donn Sorensen, president of Mercy’s east region.
