Nashville 1 Of 4 Finalists For MLS Expansion Teams

Detroit named top 4 finalist for MLS expansion team

Next week, the four cities - Nashville, Cincinnati, Detroit and Sacramento - will make formal presentations to the league's commissioner and the expansion committee, and the league will be choosing two cities for new franchises. Gilbert and Gores will speak on behalf of Detroit's bid, according to an MLC release. "From soccer fans to elected leaders, Nashville has demonstrated an unprecedented level of enthusiasm for bringing MLS to the city", lead investor John R. Ingram said in a statement.

As for the hypothetical team potentially playing at Ford Field, the group supporting the team said that it "would expand existing capabilities of Ford Field, creating intimate soccer-specific experience in the heart of Detroit's resurgent downtown core".

The prospective soccer franchise would play games at Ford Field, as Lions owner Martha Firestone Ford joined forces with Gilbert and Gores to help bolster Detroit's bid.

St. Louis is still among the cities that made bids for an MLS expansion team that could someday get a team, however.

FC Cincinnati is among four teams officially named finalists for Major League Soccer's expansion, the league announced Wednesday. Sports franchises have a unique ability to unite and inspire people.

How close is Ben Stokes to appearing in The Ashes?
The third Ashes Test begins in Perth on December 14, while England start a two-day tour game in the same city on December 9. Ultimately if our board says no, it wont happen, (but) I hope from a coaching point of view we can make this work.

Winning cities are expected to be announced before the end of the year.

The field was narrowed down to 12 teams in January.

In August, MLS Commissioner Dan Garber said Detroit is energized for soccer, and they are expanding with four new teams. Two cities will be awarded teams.

Ford Field underwent more than $100 million in renovations before the 2017-18 National Football League season, which they believe will help grow soccer and benefit the community.
