    Default How large will the MLS get?

    How many teams do you think we'll ultimately end up having?

    I'm going with 32, I'd like an alignment of two 16-team conferences with either 2 eight-team divisions or 4 four-team divisions in each.

    32? thats a lot of teams, maybe in a few decades IMO. I think 20 would be good for now and the foreseeable future, 10 and 10 in each league.

    Map of*MLS*Teams | Distance Between MLS*Stadiums

    map of the current MLS teams, what cities are missing?

    maybe Atlanta, and Miami. Could North Carolina could support a team? Vegas?

    Southeast is a HUGE whole right now.

    Chicago seems to be among the slowest to accept soccer, but we have a market big enough for 2 teams if more people start showing their support.

    A 2nd team in New York, some more Canada, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, maybe even Cleveland or Cincinnati...

    Detroit, sure, I just prefer Milwaukee and St. Louis for some reason (watch too much Cubs, lol).

    Indianapolis, no.

    20 teams now, and capping at 24 until the promotion/relegation converstaion begins --but we're a long ways off from that

    As I've always stated, I don't mind it as long as the infrastructure and talent pool can handle it. But we're nowhere near that.

    I don't want to see a division 2 Fire and a division 1 team from some super small city, that's all.
