MLS to make major announcement in Nashville Wednesday

Major League Soccer is expected to name Nashville as its next expansion city today.

Nashville was competing with Detroit, Cincinnati and Sacramento for two expansion openings for the 2020 season.

In an email from the MLS2Nashville group, it was announced there will be a "significant announcement about the future of soccer in Nashville". "But it's only a matter of when MLS will be coming to Sacramento, not if", paraphrasing the words of MLS commissioner Don Garber when he came to Sacramento in April 2016 before the current expansion process kicked off.

Sources told THR in August that The Office may be revived with a new cast and creator Greg Daniels attached. A new version of the show will air during the 2018-2019 TV season, TV Line reported today .

A second team in Southern California, Los Angeles FC, will begin play in 2018 at a new stadium next to the L.A. Coliseum, raising the number of teams to 23. John Ingram, lead investor of Nashville's expansion group, will also be present.

Businessman Dan Gilbert, Pistons Vice Chairman Arn Tellem, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, top Gilbert aide Matt Cullen, Detroit Lions President Rod Wood, and Matt Rossetti, president of Detroit-based architects Rossetti Inc. spearheaded Detroit's pitch to bring an MLS team to Ford Field. And those for the MLS didn't do a good enough job at convincing city voters WHY this was actually good for them. It is planning to soon invite a second city, with Cincinnati, Sacramento and Detroit in the running.

Falling into the consolation bracket, though, won't sooth the disappointment of Cincinnati or Sacramento fans if their city loses out.
