As it stated in DETROIT (WXYZ) – Major League soccer has been a topic of conversation for awhile now in the Motor City.
The idea behind the proposal of an MLS soccer team is to boost the already seemingly endless energy going into Detroit’s renaissance.
If approved, their plan would bring an MLS team to metro Detroit.
Soon we could learn more about plans to bring a soccer team to metro Detroit at the site of the stalled Wayne County jail near the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice.
Later today, we expect to learn more about plans from billionaire businessman Dan Gilbert and Pistons owner Tom Gores.

Investors apply for Major League Soccer expansion team in San Diego
”soccer here in San Diego is a natural fit and I’m first and foremost a fan,” said Donovan.
“Our goal is to make San Diego the epicenter of soccer in the United States.”The local bid comes more than two weeks after the National Football League’s Chargers announced plans to move to Los Angeles after 56 seasons in San Diego.
City officials are determining how long to keep open Qualcomm Stadium, which is far too large for the MLS and the San Diego State University football team.
Garber said San Diego checks many of the boxes for MLS expansion, including passionate fans, a young city, a new breed of owners and the stadium vision.

While some markets have existing teams in the United Soccer League or North American Soccer League — which are one level below the MLS — Detroit doesn’t appear to be hindered by not having a second-division club.
“We believe the success of Major League Soccer is driven by visionary and dedicated owners,” Courtemanche said.
The MLS expansion committee and Commissioner Don Garber will review expansion applications and then conduct in-person meetings with potential owners and officials soon afterward.
Garber said he considered the jail site important to Detroit’s bid, though it’s not believed to be a deal-breaker.
