Major League Soccer is going to get even more, well, major over the course of the next few years. At halftime of the AT&T All-Star Game tonight, MLS Commissioner Don Garber announced that the league will be expanding between now and 2020. According to Garber, MLS will swell to 24 teams and cities like Orlando, Atlanta, Miami, Minneapolis, Detroit, and Sacramento that have shown an interest in obtaining their own MLS team will finally get a crack at it.
"The strength, passion, and vision of the MLS ownership group is the foundation behind the success of our league," Garber said. "We look forward to adding new partners with the same commitment to the sport and love of the game."
Yeah, like we said, major.
