MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER EYES TORONTO

     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).
