Major League Soccer’s quest for expansion is set to continue with a meeting Thursday.

The league announced on Wednesday that representatives from Las Vegas, Minneapolis, and Sacramento are set to make presentations to league representatives in a Thursday meeting at the league’s headquarters.

According to the league, future expansion plans will then be discussed at the Dec. 6 MLS Board of Governors meeting.

MLS has long held a goal of closing out the decade with a 24-team league, with 20 of those teams set to feature in 2015 with the introduction of New York City FC and Orlando City. In addition, the recently announced Los Angeles FC and a yet-to-be-named Atlanta franchise are set to join the league in 2017. A possible expansion club in Miami is still on the table as well if David Beckham’s ownership group can secure a downtown stadium location for his team.
