NEW YORK (AP) -- Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber says D.C. United may have to move from RFK Stadium because of its high lease costs and could relocate to another city if a long-term facility isn't found.

Speaking on a conference call Thursday, Garber said without a cheaper lease "they've got to move to another facility in the region." He said "if they can't find a solution in Baltimore" the league would "think about potentially moving the team."

Garber also said MLS will go to an unbalanced 34-game schedule next year and there is "a very strong possibility" next year's MLS Cup will be played at the site of the team that wins the Supporters Shield for best regular-season record.
