MLS Team Appears Headed To Nashville; No Word On Detroit

MLS to make announcement about 'the future of soccer in Nashville' MLS announces trip to Nashville as FC Cincinnati fans wait out expansion news

Ingram, the Commissioner of Major League Soccer, Mayor Megan Barry, and Governor Bill Haslam will be holding a press conference in Nashville on Wednesday.

FC Cincinnati fans are eagerly awaiting news about whether the soccer club will be granted an expansion bid from Major League Soccer.

If that is the case, Detroit, Sacramento and several bidding cities that were not among the finalists will vie for two additional spots in the coming years.

An important announcement on the future of soccer in Nashville will be made on Wednesday. "But it's only a matter of when MLS will be coming to Sacramento, not if", paraphrasing the words of MLS commissioner Don Garber when he came to Sacramento in April 2016 before the current expansion process kicked off. However, that plan changed when the Detroit Lions' owners, the Ford family, got involved and presented an alternative plan that would see a Detroit MLS team share Ford Field with the Lions.

The expansion group includes the Wilf brothers, who own the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League (NFL).

A second team in Southern California, Los Angeles FC, will begin play in 2018 at a new stadium next to the L.A. Coliseum, raising the number of teams to 23. Boosters in each presumably already know the choice. Detroit is among four sites being considered for two new teams - a list narrowed from 12 cities. If either Sacramento or Cincinnati doesn't get a franchise now, they're nailed on to join a year later. The selections come this month.
