NEW YORK (AP) Major League Soccer hopes to place its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta.
"We're making progress in both of those markets. I wouldn't say we're close," MLS Commissioner Don Garber said Tuesday ahead of this weekend's championship game between Real Salt Lake and Sporting Kansas City.
Former Manchester United, Real Madrid and Los Angeles Galaxy star David Beckham is leading the Miami effort and has the right to an expansion team at a discount fee of $25 million.
