Brooklyn push for MLS franchise

Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz wants a MLS franchise in the area.

Markowitz wants Major League Soccer to drop its plan to build a pro-soccer stadium in Flushing Meadows Park, and instead field a team in the "greener pastures" of his borough.

"I know Queens is pushing for a stadium, but I believe pro soccer belongs here in Brooklyn," Markowitz told the New York Post.

"Soccer is the Number 1 sport in the world, so why shouldn't we have a team here in Brooklyn?"
