MLS Expansion - Boca Juniors USA

One of the great clubs of South America is interested in expanding into MLS. Boca Juniors would like to establish a franchise in the US to start play next season with New York, Miami, Los Angeles and Arizona as areas of interest.

Orlando Salvestrini, the marketing director of Boca, said, “talks are advanced” in relation to the possibility of this happening. Also, this new team would look at interchanging players between the US and their main club in Argentina, meaning that more big name Argentine players could end up in MLS and if they perform anything like Guillermo Barros Schelotto with the Columbus Crew, that will be a fantastic thing.

As far as a home location, the article mentions Boca building a '20,000 capacity stadium either in New York or Miami, resembling their legendary Bombonera stadium', which seems to suggest that these two locations are the most likely places for any MLS club.

New York has been getting a lot of talk of late, so maybe this has been the plan all along, however, a return to Miami, with strong money and a good team backing it, could really be a great PR move by the league. As far as LA or Arizona, does LA really need another club and with Phoenix already stuffed full with professional sports teams (relative to their size), do they really want to fight it out?

Phoenix can go....themselves. Boca deserves a Latino friendly environment.

The soccer:Nutella analogy is hilarious, I agree 100 percent.

If Arizona would have a soccer team, there would be no support because all the Mexicans would be afraid to go to the stadium, for they fear immigration would catch them.
