What are you talking about? Albuquerque and its metropolitan area is projected to reach 1.2 million by 2025.

Just cities where I can see have MLS teams, if things all go right and according to plan. No sources, just me thinking.

This is concept from mcrosby and capitalcanuck (posters from a sports logo forum). Obviously there's little chance of having 32 clubs in the MLS in 8 years.... and I believe there are restrictions on the number of clubs you can have in a soccer league anyway, but here's some ideas for cities, as well logos (badges) for those clubs.

Personally, i don't see New Mexico or Edmonton getting anything in the MLS, but who knows?

Didn't AC St. Louis fold during their first season? The graphic must be old.

No, these are concepts... not official or anything, just remade logo ideas from these guys.

Soccer is huge here in Charlotte. It would make sense to have an MLS team. We have USL currently.

Thats still a pretty low population and its just the city itself. Santa Fe is close but the rest of the State pretty much isnt. Transportation in NM is non existent. Unless you live in Burque or Santa Fe there is only one way to get to games. Knowing people in Burque there is an interest in football, but not a big enough interest to support a team by any stretch of the imagination.
