SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Major League Soccer is heading back to the Bay Area.

The league announced Wednesday that it has agreed to a deal with the owners of the Oakland A's that will bring a team back to the area, following last year's departure of the San Jose Earthquakes.

Lew Wolff and John Fisher, the A's principal owners, will have three years to buy a team and develop a stadium solely for soccer. The location of the new stadium has not been determined but the new offices will be located in downtown San Jose.
