CBC News: Solid case for Canadian MLS expansion


Recommended Posts

Guys, I got this info directly from a subsection of the CBC news clip on the Montreal Impact article. I found it very interesting.


Solid case for MLS expansion

In Joey Saputo and George Gillett, Montreal’s MLS bid is well funded, and that could tip the scales in their favour when it comes time for the next round of expansion.

That spells good news for Canadian soccer fans. There is already a fierce rivalry between the Impact and Toronto FC, as witnessed in the Nutrilite Canadian Championships. Imagine the support and media attention that rivalry will generate if it is translated to MLS league play?

Before that happens, there is still much work to be done, though. Montreal faces the Vancouver Whitecaps in the semifinals of the USL-1 playoffs on Friday and Sunday.

They then jet off to Trinidad to face Joe Public in Champions League play. A victory there will almost certainly mean qualification for the quarter-finals.

For fans of Canadian soccer, we can only hope.
