I think San Diego is good for one more team. NBA and NHL isn't happening, so the next best thing would be MLS.

Minneapolis (U of M Stadium) will be hosting Manchester City vs Olympiacos this weekend and it appears attendance will approach 35,000 in an exhibition that has recieved relatively little promotion until recently. There are two viable groups here that are hoping for an MSL franchise and most here fully expect a franchise to be awarded at some point.

I know it's not a trendy area, but the passion and potential seems to be there in Detroit.

It would be great if the game could be built from the grass roots in a place like this.

So, the MLS would have two Toyota Stadiums and a Toyota Park...

Yeah. And the NBA has two American Airlines named arenas (Dallas and Miami). There's a Target Center and Target Field, both in Minnesota and not that far away from each other.

It's really not that uncommon.

Well, I suppose for differentiation you could have:

Toyota Park
Toyota Field
Toyota Stadium

In the future, Toyota Grounds and Toyota Pitch are still available. Hmmm, assuming there is a future Alaska team, it could be Toyota Tundra...
