MLS to make announcement about 'the future of soccer in Nashville'

MLS announces trip to Nashville as FC Cincinnati fans wait out expansion news

Nashville are expected to be named Major League Soccer's (MLS) newest expansion franchise when commissioner Don Garber makes an "important announcement" in the Tennessee state capital on Wednesday.

BREAKING: The MLS Commissioner will be in Nashville tomorrow for a big announcement!

A 27,500-seat stadium costing $275 million will be built by the team and city at the fairgrounds, which is a few miles from downtown, and the club may play at a temporary location like Vanderbilt University until it is completed, the Post reported.

Sacramento is competing with Cincinnati and Detroit for that second spot. A Miami ownership group spearheaded by former superstar David Beckham may get approval this winter. Seeking an even number, MLS is likely to have one newcomer start in 2019 and two in 2020.

"It looks like Detroit's bid for its own Major League Soccer team might be a miss", Metro Times editor Lee DeVito concludes now that Nashville is picked as one of two 2020 expansion cities.

With both Sacramento and Cincinnati now having successful USL franchises as the center pieces of their bids, life will go on whatever happens and they'll both continue to get big crowds and attract interest. The other cities are Charlotte, Raleigh, Tampa, Indianapolis, San Antonio, Phoenix, St. Louis and San Diego. Nashville has drawn large crowds for global matches but has nearly no soccer history. And those for the MLS didn't do a good enough job at convincing city voters WHY this was actually good for them.
