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

Reports out of Cincinnati and from the Mercury News in California point to Cincinnati as the next to win an expansion team.

Cincinnati, Nashville, Sacramento and Detroit are each vying for the two 2020 expansion bids.

Surely MLS can add three teams right now instead of two, right?

FC Cincinnati fans are eagerly awaiting news about whether the soccer club will be granted an expansion bid from Major League Soccer.

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

With FC Cincinnati setting second-division attendance records, it is a strong candidate to receive the next slot and enter in 2019, followed by Nashville and Miami the following year. That means there is only one expansion team left to be awarded.

Diddy declares interest in buying Carolina Panthers
There are NO AFRICAN AMERICAN MAJORITY OWNERS IN THE NFL! Richardson had previously said that the team would be sold when he died. Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson says he will sell the team at the end of this season over sexual misconduct allegations.

MLS Board of Governors was scheduled to meet and vote last week, though FC Cincinnati has been given no exact time when a public announcement may come. If either Sacramento or Cincinnati doesn't get a franchise now, they're nailed on to join a year later.

Two expansion teams are up for grabs and Music City's approval for a $275 million soccer stadium is believed to have put the city in good position to be one of the two selected.

Although Nashville has little soccer tradition, more than 56,000 attended an exhibition between English Premier League teams Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur in July.

The league has stayed silent so far on details of a planned second expansion city.
