Garber again on the state of NY expansion
at 4:31 PM Posted by Brandon S
Don Garber spoke this week with the NJ Star Ledger and was asked again about possible expansion in the NYC area:
"The Red Bulls have a very European focus to how they do business and believe a rivalry will be good for them rather than viewing it as competition. And they’re working with us to move that process along. We’ve got a lot of work to do to get a stadium done. We’re working closely with Mayor Bloomberg’s office, the City of New York and potential investors, but we’re very hopeful that we can have a 20th team in New York. Our next expansion team."
As promising at it sounds, it seems to be the same generic answers Garber gives anytime the same question is asked. Perhaps this time however, the news of actually "working" with the City of New York and Bloomberg could signal steps have been made in the right direction.
