Major League Soccer in Sacramento seems to be a few formalities away from becoming a reality following Thursday’s announcement the league would expand to 30 teams.
It’s good news for Republic FC fans: with three teams being added to the league, Commissioner Don Garber said after Thursday’s Board of Governor meeting frontrunners Sacramento and St. Louis are the only two cities approved to enter formal expansion discussions.
The discussions will involve Sacramento formally presenting the league with its stadium plans and proving that it has the necessary fan base and corporate support to hoist the city from the minors to the major league.
If all goes according to plan, Republic FC could compete in MLS by 2021 or 2022.
