The others are currently in plans or VERY possbile. In fact, Orlando's getting closer to an SSS. San Antonio has the Scorpions. Look for them to move up sometime this decade.
if only the marlins didn't take the land from the orange bowl. I would have been much happier had they moved to Texas and left the space open for an MLS stadium to be built there.

Is there a chance that a new MLS team can play in the Orange bowl? The New England Revs and Seattle play in American Football stadiums

The Orange Bowl doesn't exist anymore.

This is what's in its place, now:



But to answer your question, sure, ANY MLS team can play in American stadiums, but it's best not to, really.

Here is the soccer config for Marlins Park ....... definitely not ideal, although I have seen worse



Don't think it would be likely for there to be a shared MLB/MLS stadium

FIU has been expanding their stadium in phases and the next phase would push capacity over 20k - Miami FC and Gold Cup games have been played there in the recent past .... being completely open they'd run into weather issues there

The FAU stadium is larger and will host a friendly between germany & ecuador at the end of the month

Both stadiums are pretty new or newly renovated. Would have been nice to potentially have some vision and work a partnership between MLS/MLS ownership group and one of the universities.

New York City FC New York City FC

Bad move, MLS just wants the $$$$ now and not a better league it looks like.

I want the new miami team to be based at FIU stadium and it should be named in Spanish.

Where did the names for the New York Cosmos (original team), Miami Fusion and Columbus Crew come from? From what I recall, I can't think of anything in those cities that are associated with those teams name.
