Don Garber Heads To San Antonio

The MLS commissioner heads to San Antonio to meet with the city's mayor.

It may still be a long way down the road but the possibility of a third Texan Major League Soccer team could still happen.

MLS commissioner Don Garber will head to San Antonio on Tuesday to meet with mayor Julian Castro and Gordon Hartman, the owner of NASL's Scorpions, to discuss the possibility of an expansion bid, according to a report from Express News.

"He's certainly aware of growing popularity of the sport in San Antonio, and he's excited to learn more during the visit," MLS spokesman Dan Courtemanche told Express News. "Clearly the Scorpions have been a tremendous success at the lower divisions, as illustrated by their strong support. It's something all of us in the American soccer community has noticed."

Garber originally was going to meet with Castro back in November of 2013 in New York City but was forced to cancel that meeting. He will now arrive in San Antonio ahead of Wednesday's friendly between Mexico and South Korea at the Alamodome.

The Scorpions, who play their matches at Toyota Field since 2012, averaging 9,176 fans that season while finishing in first place during the NASL regular season. They averaged just under 7,000 per game in 2013.

MLS is looking to expand to 24 clubs by the end of the decade. Two more teams will join the league next year, as New York City FC and Orlando City SC kick off their inaugural seasons.

The dream of the Texas triangle in MLS is still a possibility. Would adding a third team in Texas still work for you all?
