LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville City FC will donate $17,000 to help the homeless currently living in a camp on the site of its new soccer stadium.

The donation will allow residents of the Campbell Camp in Butchertown to stay in hotels for two months. However, Louisville Metro Councilman Brent Ackerson said he was told that one of the team's investors, Tim Mulloy, lobbied against his plan to keep the city from getting rid of homeless camps during extreme weather.

However, that plan was defeated. Mulloy did not return our call for a comment.
