If they expand MLS, who will be watching?
Kartik Krishnayir at Major League Soccer Talk is doubtful that more Major League Soccer expansion will help the league’s ailing television numbers, unless it includes a second franchise in the New York City area.
But that’s not happening, at least for now, as Mets owner Fred Wilpon, who’s been interested in bringing MLS to Queens, is in no shape to follow through. He got taken to the cleaners by Bernie Madoff.
Krishnayir doesn’t mention television possibilities for another potential MLS expansion city uttered last week by commissioner.
But Atlanta was one of the top markets in the country tuning into the finals of the Confederations Cup, for whatever that’s worth.
