Garber addresses prospects of second New York team

At Tuesday's USA-Ecuador game, MLS Commissioner Don Garber hosted three prospective investors for a New York team in his suite at Red Bull Arena. The Commissioner also indicated that the New York Cosmos are not at the forefront of the discussions.

“I don’t know that they’re [Cosmos] involved,” Garber said. “They’ve got some things that they’re trying to work out within their ownership group. But as I‘ve said many times, I applaud what they’ve been doing. They’re doing a great job building their brand and when we’re ready to get that team launched and they want to be a part of it, we’ll be happy to talk to them.”

As far as the prospects of a second MLS team in the New York area, Garber said, “if we can build a stadium, we’re going to have a 20th team in New York City. ... At the end of the day, we’ve got to get a stadium built and I believe we’ll be able to get that done. I feel better about it now than I have at any other point. ... If we get a stadium built, we’ll have no problem getting an ownership group for that team. I think it will ultimately come to fruition. The question for me is, How long is it going to take? How much patience do we have? How many meetings and press conference have we had about a stadium for the MetroStars and now the Red Bulls?

"It takes a long time. But we’ll get it done the way we got [Red Bull Arena] done."
