    Not good news for Charlotte but makes the Phoenix bid look that much stronger.

    Yeah good news for Phoenix. I really thought that San Diego would be the next city to win a MLS expansion team. Now it's up in the air for them and not looking good.

    San Diego City Council members voted unanimously, 8-0, to put the SoccerCity initiative on the November 2018 ballot Monday, instead of a special election.

    Councilmember Scott Sherman did say it's possible there could be another vote at a different time, leaving a small glimmer of hope for an earlier special election. During Monday's meeting, he stressed that he wanted to have a special election but will not because legal opinion does not support that motion.
