FC Cincinnati fans are eagerly awaiting news about whether the soccer club will be granted an expansion bid from Major League Soccer. MLS announced Tuesday morning that league commissioner Don Garber will join the city's mayor for an announcement about "the future of soccer in Nashville". Most importantly, Nashville has secured local government approval for a new, soccer-specific stadium set to open by 2021.

The MLS Commissioner will be in Nashville tomorrow for a big announcement! He'll be joined by @MayorMeganBarry and Gov.

Nashville is one of four cities that has been vying to earn one of the two MLS teams that are part of the upcoming expansion. FC Cincinnati officials were in New York City earlier this month to plead their team's case before MLS officials, who were scheduled to meet on December 14 to make a decision on which two teams would join the league.

The group Save our Fairgrounds opposes the construction of the stadium and surrounding development because they say it will interfere with other activities at the site, including the state fair, auto racing and flea markets. We are not a projection.
