It's long been speculated that the "end game" for the Indy Eleven would be promotion to Major League Soccer. For the first time since the franchise's inception, the Eleven has thrown their hat into the MLS ring:
Indianapolis makes it a dozen cities in play for the MLS' planned four-team expansion. They'll face competition from several "regional" sites like Cincinnati and St. Louis, and MLS teams already exist in Columbus and Chicago.
Any chance of moving up to the MLS is dependent on the Eleven getting approval for their long-coveted downtown stadium. Their most recent $82 million stadium proposal was shot down in 2015, and an MLS expansion fee could be $150 million or more.
How do you feel about the Eleven getting a new stadium and moving to the MLS?
