Dennis Porter says that Major League Soccer are looking to start a soccer franchise in Las Vegas.
The Utility Services Director of the City of Henderson, Nevada has confirmed that MLS is keen to move a new club into a proposed stadium in the Las Vegas area and could potentially share the venue with a NBA team.
"We know absolutely, positively, the MLS is interested in [a franchise] for Las Vegas," Porter said. "They have said that themselves.
"I think the developers are on the right track with the MLS and NBA possibilities," Porter added.
"With the more potential this can produce, the future could be very bright for the Las Vegas and Henderson areas."
