MLS is adding 6 more teams

Recommended Posts

Good chance Charlotte will be on that list.  Tepper would need to fork out $200M initial fee and he already have the stadium so this should be relatively easy unless he wants to build another stadium just for soccer.

Ah didnt realise teams 24 through 27 was expansion teams. 

$200M is nothing to Tepper especially if he will use Panthers stadium.  It’s crazy good investment.

If the season tickets are going to be around the prices they surveyed about, I'm on board.

How much?  I will get season tickets for soccer.

They asked about 12 or so different scenarios with different seating. It ranged from $150 seat license, $450 season tickets to $650 seat license, $1100 season tickets. Really not that bad for, what, at least 10+ home games?

I mean Charlotte isn’t much of a city with sport demand, though it is growing ridiculously and in the future it could be. It’s a business city though, honestly I’d rather a baseball team before soccer. I’m not a sports marketing expert by any means but seems to a soccer team would not be profitable.

MLS can be a huge money maker in the right city. BoA already hosts an international game year that has good tickets sales and is already hosting Gold Cup games. The long plan I’m assuming is making Charlotte a contender for World Cup games next decade when North America hosts the World Cup and Charlotte needs to prove it can sell soccer games

Yea, definitely over 10 home games.  More like 20 home games.  European clubs play around 30-35 home games a year with regular league (18 games) and multiple other cups.
