- Features, MLS Expansion
Are the four open MLS Expansion spots already taken up? Well according to this tweet, three of the four are. Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber spoke to a group in Toronto yesterday and had this to offer.
Speaking in Toronto this afternoon #MLS Commissioner Don Garber said 3 of the 4 expansion franchises are “already spoken for.”

Garber was speaking in Toronto yesterday at an event hosted by Wileman. Garber didn’t go into the specifics of which cities were spoken for though, which makes one believe that it could be any number of cities.
The obvious picks for two of the three are Florida based with Orlando and Miami. That we know to be pretty true given how the league will be expanding to at least Orlando in 2015 and likely Miami in 2016.
Who that third city is may be the bigger question. My sources have told me that there are a couple cities that are courting MLS heavily at the moment behind the scenes. In no particular order they are Minneapolis, Sacramento, San Antonio, and Atlanta.
Then again, this comment from Garber could just be him saying things to a crowd.
