Forget NY and Orlando: Could Minnesota be first to expansion?

By Simon Borg

While New York and Orlando have grabbed the headlines when it comes to MLS expansion talk, there may be a market that could beat both of them to the chase.

Reports out of Minnesota claim that a deal will be announced this week between the NFL Vikings and the city of Minneapolis for a new stadium. In a TV appearance on Sunday, the football team's vice president for stadium development puts Major League Soccer high on the list when it comes to the sports that the the new facility would house.

"It’s a tremendous opportunity for a multi-purpose stadium to be owned by the public and used by everyone — get NCAA basketball, major league soccer, get a Super Bowl back and get a million people a year coming into this facility,” said the Vikings' Lester Bagley.
