Potential expansion franchises New York, Miami and Orlando will have to cough up $100M

A recent Forbes report suggests that potential MLS expansion franchises will have to come up with a massive fee if they want to enter the North American top flight.

Bids from New York, Miami and Orlando are being carefully considered to gain the 20th MLS license but to gain a clear way through, they will have to stump up a fee of at least $75million and as much as $100million.

Despite the enormity of the fee, it is believed that all three ownership groups of the proposed franchises are still interested in joining the ever-increasing popularity of the competition which has welcomed Vancouver Whitecaps, Portland Timbers and more recently Montreal Impact in the past two years.
