MLS Expansion: Two teams likely to come from Sacramento, Cincinnati, Nashville

According to Grant Wahl of Sports Illustrated, MLS will pick two cities to be the home of expansion clubs on December 14 as MLS owners meetings take place in New York City. A new report suggests those teams will come from two of three potential cities.

Those cities are Sacramento, Nashville, and Cincinnati, said Grant Wahl with Sports Illustrated, citing insiders.

FC Cincinnati CEO and President Jeff Berding announced Liberty Center will add a store to buy tickets and merchandise and meet players at its expansive development at the intersection of Interstate 75 and state Route 129.

If two from Cincinnati, Sacramento and Nashville earn MLS designation, that likely will leave just two slots remaining for expansion in the forseeable future.

Berding has said the hope is to make an announcement this week regarding the proposed location for a new stadium.

"We're a proven market right now", he said, claiming FCC's attendance is competitive with current MLS numbers. Cincinnati is expected to announce next week a plan to finance the construction of a $250 million soccer-specific stadium, and local authorities will vote on the measure by November 30, Jeff Berding, president of USL club FC Cincinnati told ESPN. The jersey is for illustration purposes, does not represent an official MLS or USL jersey and is not available for purchase.
