MLS Commissioner Don Garber announced today that two more teams will be added by 2011, bringing the number in the league up to 18.
Ownership groups and/or markets have until Oct. 15 to apply. MLS will make a decision on the chosen pair in either the last quarter of this year or the first quarter of 2009.
I’m pulling for that combo casino and stadium with retractable roof in Vegas (can you say road trip!) for at least one of the teams.
And Vancouver, B.C. is a beautiful city and a natural rival for Seattle (loved the atmosphere of those NASL games between the old Sounders and Whitecaps where fans actually hit the road with the clubs).
Where would you like to see the next two teams located?
