MLS chief Don Garber has revealed that the competition has started looking at the possibility of a Florida franchise even closer recently.
North Americaâ€™s domestic league is still seeking a city for the 20th license, with New York heavily backed to be added, but Garber has indicated that perhaps USL Pro outfit Orlando City has a very good chance of joining the MLS ranks in the near future.
â€śWe are more focused in Florida than weâ€™ve ever been in the past,â€ť Garber said.
â€śThe numbers of youth players from that part of the country â€“ thereâ€™s 70-80 million people in that part of the country â€“ we donâ€™t have any representation [further south] than DC.
â€śFloridaâ€™s become a bit more of a priority.â€ť
