KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Major League Soccer plans to add four expansion teams by the 2020 season.
Commissioner Don Garber announced the league’s plans during halftime of its annual All-Star game Wednesday night. The location of the teams has yet to be decided, but Garber said the league has already had discussions with potential owners.
The news came one day after Hunt Sports Group announced it was selling the Columbus Crew to investor Anthony Precourt, and with the league set to add a 20th franchise in New York in 2015.
Garber told The Associated Press during an interview this week that the issue of expansion would be discussed “in great detail” during a meeting of league owners on Wednesday.
