There are plenty of teams gambling on their odds of securing a Major League Soccer expansion slot — and a Las Vegas group is hoping city support will help their cause. A potential ownership group released Wednesday a non-binding agreement to fund a new stadium through both public and private financing to be voted on by the Las Vegas city council.
Meanwhile, Jermaine Jones’ new teammates told SBI that, after doing their part to land the U.S. Men’s National Team star in New England, they are thrilled the Revs made a bold statement by chasing down the deal.
And Bradley Wright-Phillips is on the cusp of setting a new MLS single-season scoring record — but he isn’t worried about it. In fact, even as his teammates teased him about whether he has set a new record, he told SBI he didn’t know what the overall record is.
Here is a rundown of all the stories featured on SBI Wednesday:
