KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Expansion is coming to Major League Soccer. The only questions facing the league’s board are how many teams to add, where to locate them and when to bring them into the fold.

Commissioner Don Garber told The Associated Press in a wide-ranging interview Monday that the league’s owners plan to discuss expansion “in great detail” on Wednesday.

The MLS will play Italian club AS Roma in its annual All-Star game that night.

At the moment, the league is primarily focused on adding a second team in New York. But with David Beckham holding an ownership option and several cities expressing interest in a establishing a franchise, the league could shoot past the 20-team mark in the next few years.
