New York City is happening. They will be playing in an amazing stadium right in the middle of Corona Park-Flushing Meadow. It will be built over the Fountain of the Planets with the Unisphere in the background. Garber and MLS have been slowly but steadily working on this for years. They have Bloomberg, all NYC soccer fans, and probably most importantly support from all the major unions in the city. And they have the sheik and his $100M.
Orlando City is happening in 2-3 years. And no, they will not be the Pirates. They are the Lions. They have a young Brazilian billionaire as their investor.
