2015 will go down as a pivotal year in the history of Major League Soccer, as Orlando City SC and New York City FC will enter the league as the 20th and 21st teams respectively. MLS expansion marches on!

MLS commissioner Don Garber is on record stating that the aim is to have 24 teams by 2020. Atlanta is officially the 22nd, slated to enter the MLS in 2017, while Miami is unofficially the 23rd, pending the completion of a deal for a downtown stadium. Count me among the unconvinced, but that’s a conversation for a different day.

With that in mind, let’s rank the top 10 potential cities for MLS expansion teams! (Click NEXT to view the list)
