The U.S. Major League Soccer (MLS) has recently announced its plan to expand the league to 28 teams for the 2016 competition. This future expansion will have its schedule and timeline unveiled at a later date. The league owners also announced their support for the proposed stadium location in Miami for a future expansion team owned by the former Manchester United winger, David Becham, and his partners.
MLS expansion plan points to 24 teams by 2020, with Atlanta, Los Angeles and Minnesota joining the league within the next three years. Miami however is close to becoming the 24th team.
Many analysts think that the innovation plan ought to be supported and the league should work hard in producing players who can attract big European clubs rather than being the “dust bin” of retirement nearing players from Europe.
