Expansion teams are always exciting to see in Major League Soccer, because they serve as further proof that the league is still so young and still has so much time left to develop and grow. Sure, some fans may not enjoy the fact that new faces are coming on each and every single year (which seems to be the trend now), but in the long run, we still believe it is going to benefit soccer in the United States (and Canada).
As we all know Inter Miami, the team owned by David Beckham, are set to enter the conversation sooner rather than later. As reported by Pro Soccer USA there have been a few concerns and speed bumps along the way, especially in regards to their planned stadium, but it certainly seems like they’re on the verge of turning a corner with everything as their step up their preparations.
If you happen to be a fan of the English and general European stars that have come over to the MLS and found success in recent years, too, then the following report from BBC will actively excite you.
“I think you will see if you look at our young signings, we’ve made substantial investments in them,” said Jorge Mas, one of the co-owners of the team alongside Beckham. “We’re going to couple them with players who have played in Europe who are very well known.
“We’ve looked at some English players. We’re having some conversations with some English players and we anticipate Inter Miami will have some English presence.”
