NEW YORK — Major League Soccer hopes to announce another expansion soon, this time to Montreal.
Commissioner Don Garber said the league also would like to return to the southeast, either to Atlanta or South Florida.
The league has 16 teams this season and has added franchises for 2011 in Portland, Ore., and Vancouver, British Columbia, in 2011.
Garber thinks the league will grow larger than comparable first divisions in Europe. While eventually he would like to see relegation and promotion, it’s not on the horizon because there isn’t a financially viable second division that would be acceptable to MLS owners if their teams went down
