Could El Paso be next on the MLS expansion list?

By Simon Borg

The city of El Paso, Texas, is looking to spur economic development and an MLS stadium may be part of the plan.

Yesterday the El Paso city council was presented with a list of potential projects that could be included in a future bond issue, according to this report in the El Paso Times.

Part of that proposal is a $100 to $120 million soccer stadium, which the article states would be contingent on securing an MLS team.

The idea is for the bond issue to be approved in July and then go to vote in November.
