MLS OPENING LIKELY TO BE DETAILED WITHIN MONTH
Published May 10, 1995
MLS is expected to announce details of its planned opening in '96 within a month, according to this morning's USA TODAY. The final details are expected to cover the last two teams and the investors who will get the league to the financial level required to launch -- $50M. As reported yesterday in THE DAILY, Kansas City is expected to be one of the final two MLS cities, with Dallas, Denver, and Seattle among the others being considered. MLS Chair Alan Rothenberg: "We're at the point where we have all the commitments we need for financing and operating our initial 10 teams" (Jerry Langdon, USA TODAY, 5/10).
