According to Martin Rogers' latest MLS expansion update from Yahoo! sports, Montreal and Vancouver seem to be two of the frontrunner's for 2011 MLS expansion, with a lot of focus on the City of Saints.
According to the piece, "Joey Saputo, owner of United Soccer League side Montreal Impact, is determined to secure an MLS license and already has some infrastructure in place. The Impact’s Saputo Stadium holds around 13,000 and could comfortably be expanded to 20,000 if MLS gives the green light."
What's the downside? Well, if you go by Martin's list of prospects - my home town comes in towards the end of the table! He gives Atlanta a 10% chance of getting on the MLS train, while St. Louis shares the second highest percent likelihood with the largest city in Quebec.
Rounding out the list are Vancouver, Portland, my Atlanta team, Las Vegas, a second New York franchise, and Ottawa.
