Detroit's chances for MLS team decrease after league awards team to Nashville

Nashville expecting big announcement on possible Major League Soccer franchise

It is too close to call between Sacramento and Cincinnati who are both worthy of an MLS team in this round of expansion. Nashville, Tennessee; and Sacramento, California, are finalists for two expansion clubs.

Nashville already has two major league sports franchises - the Tennessee Titans of the NFL and the Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League (NHL).

It appears that Sacramento's biggest competition is Cincinnati and their record-setting attendance numbers. That means there is only one expansion team left to be awarded.

The Bee's editorial board added that "Republic FC fans will be sorely disappointed if there's no expansion franchise this time around".

Louis Post Dispatch that Cardinals execs "leave the Walt Disney Dolphin resort with good feel for what Tampa Bay would be willin". UPDATE, 4:02: It doesn't sound like the Rays and Cardinals will be making a deal today, Derrick Goold writing for the St.

Falling into the consolation bracket, though, won't sooth the disappointment of Cincinnati or Sacramento fans if their city loses out. That's a valid argument.

Although the league did not specify what the announcement would be, multiple sources confirmed to the Post that Nashville would be an expansion team for the league.

Two expansion teams are up for grabs and Music City's approval for a $275 million soccer stadium is believed to have put the city in good position to be one of the two selected. Multiple sources confirmed MLS will announce it's expanding to Nashville, with the team probably beginning play in 2020. With David Beckham's ownership group changing up a significant part of its financial backing last month, is the Miami bid in danger of collapsing?

Is it really that hard for MLS to change its mind on the rules for this round of expansion? So far, Nashville is the only city with a scheduled visit by MLS officials.
