MLS Team Appears Headed To Nashville; No Word On Detroit

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

On Wednesday afternoon, FC Cincinnati President Jeff Berding said the process to win an expansion franchise award is an ongoing process with MLS, not just one meeting with league officials.

In an email from the MLS2Nashville group, it was announced there will be a "significant announcement about the future of soccer in Nashville".

FC Cincinnati has shattered all attendance records for minor-league soccer - it averaged 21,199 fans in 2017 - and drew three crowds of greater than 30,000 for its home Open Cup games.

Nashville is one of four cities that has been vying to earn one of the two MLS teams that are part of the upcoming expansion.

Pistons owner Tom Gores, Bill Ford Jr. and Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert have all partnered to get a team.

UN General Assembly To Condemn US' Jerusalem Decision
Egypt had put forward the draft at the council which was backed by all 14 other Security Council members in the vote on Monday. The UN General Assembly will hold a special session on Thursday, following a request by Arab and Muslim states.

Sacramento is competing with Cincinnati and Detroit for that second spot.

Falling into the consolation bracket, though, won't sooth the disappointment of Cincinnati or Sacramento fans if their city loses out.

However, it also suggests that getting a team up and running is more time sensitive compared to the situation in Sacramento and Nashville and having two wealthy owners behind the bid, plus a rock solid soccer-specific stadium plan at the fairgrounds site sealed the deal.

Although the league did not specify what the announcement would be, multiple sources confirmed to the Post that Nashville would be an expansion team for the league. It shouldn't be. Both Sacramento and Cincinnati deserve to join Nashville in the MLS party. Now.
