NEW YORK (AP) Chivas USA might not play in 2015 and perhaps longer, a decision that won't be made until a new owner takes over the Major League Soccer team.
"We expect to be able to close an agreement by the end of the season," MLS Commissioner Don Garber said Thursday after a news conference to launch the league's new logo. "Once we get an ownership group in place, we'll sit down with them and make a decision as to whether or not we're going to keep that team operating in 2015 and beyond."
The league hopes to have a schedule by late fall. With the addition of New York City and Orlando, MLS will have 20 or 21 teams next year, depending on whether Chivas USA plays.
