With Peter Wilt involved, it’s really no surprise that Milwaukee is a prime candidate for the next round of expansion. MLS Boss Don Garbar visited the town yesterday and set some deadlines for the stadium. Really none of that was surprising. However, a comment from Garber about the Kansas City team seems to hint at something.
In addition to Milwaukee, other candidates for the 2008 slot are Cleveland, Houston, Philadelphia and Rochester, N.Y., Garber said. The league is also seeking to move its Kansas City franchise to a city with a soccer-specific stadium, although Garber indicated that should happen before expansion occurs.
The emphases was added by me. Does anyone want to take a guess at what’s going on here? Could we be seeing the Milwaukee Wiz (well, they are hoping to build the stadium on the site of an old Brewery) playing in 2007?
