Detroit's chances for MLS team decrease after league awards team to Nashville

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Oh well - a hopeful city still can turn its eyes to the next Major League Soccer expansion in 2022.

MLS 2 Nashville, a community organized group which has long lobbied for a Major League Soccer team in Nashville, has announced a press conference to be held Wednesday at the County Music Hall of Fame.

All I know is when I got that PR email from the MLS about Nashville's new team, I got sad. The league has said it would prefer expansion cities to have soccer-specific stadiums, and in April asked that the Detroit bid include a new stadium.

It is still unclear which one, if any, of those cities would be awarded a club. However, that plan changed when the Detroit Lions' owners, the Ford family, got involved and presented an alternative plan that would see a Detroit MLS team share Ford Field with the Lions.

Ryan Shazier makes surprise appearance at Steelers vs. Patriots game
Sunday's victory puts the franchise in line to clinch home field advantage throughout the playoffs. In a game which lived up to its billing, the Patriots shocked the Steelers, 27-24.

A second team in Southern California, Los Angeles FC, will begin play in 2018 at a new stadium next to the L.A. Coliseum, raising the number of teams to 23.

The Bee's editorial board added that "Republic FC fans will be sorely disappointed if there's no expansion franchise this time around".

Dan Gilbert and Tom Gores, both owners of National Basketball Association teams, this afternoon make their pitch in NY to bring Major League Soccer to Detroit.

Conversely, FC Cincinnati's strength - its ownership group led by Carl Lindner III - is believed to be Sac Republic FC's weakness in MLS's eyes - its local ownership group headed by Sac Republic FC chairman Kevin Nagle lacks the heavy hitters that Cincinnati, Detroit and Nashville, the other three finalists, have.
