As is traditional, Major League Soccer commissioner Don Garber gave a big interview at the MLS All Star Game on Wednesday night, and in it gave San Antonio Soccer fans cause for concern by not mentioning San Antonio by name, and suggesting that MLS would not expand further than 28 teams.
One thing that is always asked of Garber at any such fan Q&A event is expansion, and it came up very early, with the first several questions relating to it. That allowed Garber a chance to clarify the expansion plans, and to scare San Antonio soccer fans.
Major League Soccer (MLS) is certainly keen on adding a third team to Texas but that may not necessarily be in San Antonio, sources have revealed to San Antonio Soccer News.
San Antonio FC recently gave their presentation to MLS as part of the many expansion bids to the league, which was scarcely publicized by the club. As would be expected from an organization like Spurs Sports and Entertainment (SSE) the presentation to MLS was phenomenally polished, and made a very strong case for San Antonio’s inclusion in the league.
