NEW YORK — Major League Soccer hopes to announce plans in four to six weeks for a stadium in Queens for a 20th team.
The league and New York City have been involved in negotiations to build a stadium on a site in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. MLS hopes a team there would start play in 2016 and be rivals of the New York Red Bulls, who play in Harrison, N.J.
“If we get this done, it will be in Flushing Meadow Park. There is no Plan B,” MLS Commissioner Don Garber told the Associated Press Sports Editors on Thursday.
