Just imagine a St Louis KC Rivalry wow.. If they get an mls team they should build a 30-40k stadium... On another note there were rumors Portland might expand their stadium to 32k do to very high ticket demand...

Portland definitely needs to expand their stadium. I would argue that KC needs to expand by a couple thousand seats as well.

Although Miami might not be the best option with Orlando all but finalized Miami seems really likely since naturally they want someone nearby Orlando. Can't be the only SE team.

For me the next 3 should be: Miami( not because I want Miami to have a team.), Atlanta, Minneapolis to reach 24 by 2020. There are good sources that say MLS wants to get to and stay at 28 teams.

So here are the cities/states that will be vying for those final 4 spots to get to 28:

Indianapolis
Detroit
St. Louis- I think it's criminal to not have St.Louis already in MLS, but an ownership group needs to step up first.
Sacramento
San Antonio
New York Cosmos
Carolina
Ottawa- I think MLS will add another Canadian team, and Ottawa is most likely.
Phoenix
Las Vegas
Tampa Bay

Congrats to Orlando City.

If I were a billionaire and wanted to buy a team, I would really like to get a team set up in Detroit. The city really needs it and it really wouldn't be that difficult to partner with the local school boards to get players/coaches to the public and/or charter schools to get kids out on the pitch and invite a lot of them to train with the youth teams (I would hope the majority of which would be local players) to form those bonds early.

I live in Michigan about 2hours from Detroit. I would buy season tickets to a Detroit based MLS team.

Yeah I am 2 hours from ATL and feel the same way. I keep hearing people say that a team in ATL will not do well. But I think a lot of people would be suprised. It seems like soccer is becoming the youth sport to play now and not so much baseball or football. There are also 4-5 American Outlaw chapters withen a few hours driving distance of Atlanta. Soccer in the south (and I mean deep south) is getting pretty massive.

Kicks & I are from Birmingham, Alabama. Found out the other day that the city had the highest viewer rating for the 2010 WC. Remember, that means number of people viewing based on total population of the city, not the general amount of people. B'ham was up there for Euro 2012 as well. Sounds weird in a college football-heavy region, but apparently it's true. I'd probably visit ATL for several games if it comes to that.

@Kicks - I went to an American Outlaw party at Good People for the US/Jamaica game - supposedly there's a movement to get an MLS team in Birmingham.....I laughed pretty hard at that.

Well I would have been there, but I was actually in KC @ the game. Been there a few times though. They have had some nice turnouts.

Yeah haha. The Birmingham Hammers. I know those guys actually. Full of zeal.

I love Atlanta, used to live there and really wish they'd get a team. However, Atlanta is a difficult sports town for non-traditional sports and those teams not named the Yellow Jackets, Falcons, and Braves. My Uncle still lives there and regularly goes to Silverback games, he says they are a fun team to watch except they only average around 3,000 a game, I feel that number has to get better for MLS to really take them seriously. I have a feeling at first a team in Altlanta would be great, but the second they stop winning or the glamour of a new team died down there wouldn't be alot of support.

They should partner with Birmingham City FC in England, make it a sister club kinda thing. have some sort of loan deal for U21 players in place, etc.

Could be good for their chances of making it happen.

Well, it looks almost a certainty that the next 3 teams after NYCFC are: Orlando City, Miami, and Atlanta. Southeast MLS footprint secure.

I think the three cities that will be dueling for that 24th team by 2020 will be:

Minneapolis
Detroit
San Antonio

Minneapolis looks the likely candidate for 24. MLS has had there eye on Minneapolis for awhile.

However Detroit is going to make a hard push.

San Antonio is more likely after 24.

MLS has been looking to secure another central time zone team mainly in the north central portion of the US.
