Garber Says MLS Likely To Announce Next Expansion Franchise In Coming Weeks
Published April 25, 2013
IN THE CITY? In Philadelphia, Jonathan Tannenwald reported EPL club Manchester City is the "leading candidate to operate MLS' 20th franchise," and would pay a $100M expansion fee to "take that team to a new stadium in Queens." Exactly when the team would "begin playing in MLS isn't clear yet." Manchester City will be in N.Y. at the end of May to "play a friendly against fellow Premier League power Chelsea at Yankee Stadium," and there will be "a lot of ears perked up to see if an announcement gets made at that time" (PHILLY.com, 4/24).
