Major League Soccer plans to add four new teams by the 2020
MLS Commissioner Don Garber announced the league’s plans during
halftime of its annual All-Star game Wednesday. The location of the
teams has yet to be decided, but Garber said the league has already
had discussions with potential owners.
The news came one day after Hunt Sports Group announced it was
selling the Columbus Crew to investor Anthony Precourt, and with
the league set to add a 20th franchise in New York in 2015.
Garber told The Associated Press during an interview this week
that the issue of expansion would be discussed ”in great detail”
during a meeting of league owners on Wednesday.
