Phoenix on list for Major League Soccer Expansion

Phoenix Rising FC, which will compete in the Division 2 United Soccer League next season has been invited by Major League Soccer (MLS) and no we’re not talking about the Arizona Multiple Listing Service (Which you can view here)to submit an application to create a franchise in Phoenix. The governor of Phoenix Rising FC led a group of investors to purchase Arizona United Soccer Club in August, rebranding them Phoenix Rising FC, and negotiated the creation of a new 16-acre soccer stadium in south Scottsdale.

“MLS has considered Phoenix to be an attractive soccer market for many years,” said Mark Abbott, the MLS Deputy Commissioner. “In fact, we visited Phoenix and toured potential stadium sites 13 years ago.”

Phoenix will compete with 11 other cities for one of two MLS expansions. Amongst those competing are; Charlotte, Cincinnati, Detroit, Nashville, Raleigh/Durham, Sacramento, St. Louis, San Antonio, San Diego and Tampa/St. Petersburg.

The announcement will happen later this year and the selected teams will pay during the 2020 MLS season. If all goes well, soon Arizona will have a new sports team to root for.

If Phoenix Rising FC is chosen to be a franchise MLS team, real estate in south Scottsdale is sure to increase, even faster than the predicted 7.2% sales growth for 2017.
