MLS Next is set for 2015:
THE NEXT PHASE OF MLS
2015 will mark Major League Soccer’s 20th season. Less a milestone than a starting point, the 2015 season will kick off the next phase of MLS’s evolution, with many exciting, new developments:
New Clubs: New York City FC and Orlando City SC will begin play in MLS in 2015. An expansion club in Atlanta will join in 2017. And David Beckham is continuing to work on his plan for an expansion club in Miami.
New Media Partnerships: MLS will begin new television and media rights partnerships with ESPN, FOX and Univision in the United States. In Canada, we continue to have strong partnerships with TSN and RDS.
New Stadiums: Currently, 15 MLS clubs play in stadiums built or renovated for soccer, and more will debut soon, including San Jose (2015) and Orlando (2016).
New Stars: MLS club owners are making significant investments in world-class players, including Clint Dempsey (Seattle), Michael Bradley and Jermain Defoe (Toronto), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), Matt Besler and Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City), Jermaine Jones (New England), Kaka (Orlando), Maurice Edu (Philadelphia), and David Villa and Frank Lampard (NYCFC).
