( Los Angeles, California ) - Now that all the pieces are in place for FC Cincinnati to build a stadium in the West End, now it's a matter of waiting to see if it will even get a franchise offer from Major League Soccer.
On Tuesday evening, MLS put out a statement that said:
"Major League Soccer’s owners met today in Los Angeles and discussed a variety of topics, including a review of potential expansion finalists Cincinnati, Detroit and Sacramento. The MLS Board of Governors viewed the recent Cincinnati City Council vote on the West End stadium as a positive step forward for Cincinnati’s expansion bid. While there was no plan for formal expansion vote at today’s Board of Governors meeting, the League will continue discussions with the three expansion finalists."
There will be no stadium construction if the team doesn't join MLS.
