MLS Chair Alan Rothenberg is reportedly interested in expanding into Toronto with a franchise that would play at the SkyDome. Rothenberg has sent representatives to Toronto to speak with Richard Peddie, former President of the SkyDome, who is helping put together Sports Co., a corporation "that eventually will run the Blue Jays, Argonauts, the SkyDome and possibly Toronto's soccer franchise in MLS." Peddie "has made it clear" to MLS that Sports Co. "would be interested only in a Canadian team and claims he has the moral support of the Canadian Soccer Association" (George Gross, TORONTO STAR, 1/27).
