STL CITY UPDATE

St. Louis CITY SC Transfer Forward Niko Gioacchini to Como 1907

St. Louis CITY SC agreed to terms on the transfer of Niko Gioacchini to Como, an Italian Serie B (second division) club, for an undisclosed fee. He leaves as CITY SC’s co-leader for goals in a single season with 10 and joins a Como squad that is tied with Venezia for the second automatic promotion spot to Serie A.

“While always difficult to see one of our top performing players move on, we understand the attractiveness of joining European football and will be immensely proud to cheer Niko on, as he fights for promotion to Serie A,” said St. Louis CITY SC Sporting Director Lutz Pfannenstiel. “He was a key member to our inaugural season’s success and will always be remembered for it. We wish him and his family all the best.”

Gioacchini played his best soccer to date in St. Louis after stints in France and Orlando City. He was CITY SC’s first selection in the 2022 MLS Expansion Draft.

**Ask the Expert: Selling Your House**

*How long does it take to sell my house?*

The timeline for selling a house can vary, but on average, it takes about 65-93 days from listing to closing.
