Major League Soccer to add 4 teams by 2020 season

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.
