South Jersey Expansion Looks to be Dead

South Jersey Expansion Looks to be Dead

Bad news for an area that would love to get their hands on an MLS team. The head guys in the group that were planning this venue and proposal for a MLS team almost bought the Kansas City Wizards off of Lamar Hunt last year. I guess Uncle Lamar wasn’t thrill to see one of his teams get moved to South Jersey.

Too bad really, I had high hopes for this venue. South Jersey is real close to the Philly area, and that is a market that I have always felt the MLS needed to tap into.
