St Louis. They are going to hit the ground running in my opinion it's overdue. Big soccer town and a region known for producing players. Good players.

I am from Chicago which is getting a rebrand and moving back to soldier field next year. The problem is the lack of a USL team and a pathway to the pros has limited Chicago from succeeding where others have previously.

St Louis makes sense, and with the Rams gone there is a void where they should be able to succeed.

Still baffled why Nashville got a team. I doubt they will have a big market for soccer viewership. But hey, money talks.

Well Nashville is the country music capital of the world. If MLS can get a few country superstars interested in the sport, it may expand the fanbase more.

The NHL took a chance there and the franchise seems to be doing well.

How can they talk about expansion when the players might strike?

But the ST Louis stadium plan is garbage. They need to do a 40,000 version of the rams waterfront plan !

I would love to see a team in Detroit. They were first in line for a franchise and then the stadium deal fell though in downtown Detroit, then they got the Fords on board who want to play at Ford field. MLS has been very clear that they don't want new teams sharing with NFL teams, they was soccer specific stadiums. I have no idea why the bidding group all the sudden did the opposite of what MLS has clearly stated that they want. So now the bid for a Detroit MLS team is an afterthought and all these other cities are getting teams. There are so many places in downtown they could build a stadium and there is already infrastructure in place to handle parking, hotels etc. No idea why this didn't get done.
