MLS AIMS FOR 10-TEAM LEAGUE; ARE DENVER/DALLAS FINAL SITES?
Published June 1, 1995
With less than a year from its kickoff, MLS "still has plenty of uncertainties. Dallas is one of them," reports soccer- writer David McNabb of the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. The MLS hopes to have a news conference next week to announce their 10-team league. MLS has previously named eight teams, with Kansas City expected to be the ninth. That would leave Dallas and Denver going for the final spot. Both have "strong youth soccer programs, but neither has the 20,000-seat stadium the MLS is seeking." MLS has spoken with officials at the Cotton Bowl, SMU and several high schools about stadium use (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 5/31).
