I was just looking at the other various candidates for MLS expansion: Orlando, Minnesota, San Antonio. something struck me about them that started to worry me about a potential MLS expansion to Carolina. I noticed that in every single instance, each team had only a single team in the NASL/USL. Having only a single team represent them meant that the entirety of that city's or region's fanbase could be concentrated into one team, maximizing attendance and therefore getting the attention of MLS. Carolina, on the other hand, has not one, not two, not three, but FOUR NASL/USL teams. While this gives each major community in our states a hometown team to cheer for, I fear that having so many teams to support may hurt Carolina's chances for MLS expansion. Rather than unite all of our soccer fans around a single club, Carolina's huge soccer fanbase is divided among four clubs, diluting attendance figures and keeping any one of our teams from getting enough attention from MLS to warrant a true expansion consideration. So I ask you: do you guys think that the Carolinas have too many lower division clubs for us to effectively mount an MLS expansion campaign?
