- MLS Expansion, MLS Vancouver, Vancouver Expansion, Vancouver Whitecaps
Today is the day. Finally, after months of speculating over expansion sites we will finally know one of the two winners. The Pacific Northwest just got another boost with Vancouver, as they are expected to be announced as the 17th MLS club today at noon CT.
Vancouver has beat out remaining finalists Portland, St. Louis and Ottawa for one of the two 2011 expansion clubs. Portland and St. Louis are the favorites for the remaining bid, with various reports identifying Portland as the favorite to join Vancouver (more on that in a bit thanks to some emails from Portland).
You can follow today’s expansion announcement here.
Excited for Vancouver? Or just happy to see this fun run come to an end here?
