    Travel would be awful for them though unless if there is some serious expansion out west.

    "We can't get enough people to come to our soccer games to stop hemorrhaging money. I know, let's move the team to a backwater location in a metro area half the size!"
    I'm not sure travel is going to be their biggest problem, honestly.

    I mean, I don't think we should be ruling out the possibility of L2 here.

    Brett Johnson of Fortuitous Partners - and co-chairman of Phoenix Rising FC - is bringing a USL Championship franchise to Pawtucket, Rhode Island in time for the 2022 season.

    As part of the $400 million Tidewater Landing mixed-use development, said team would play its home matches at a 7,500-seat stadium on the west bank of the Seekonk River in downtown Pawtucket. Adjacent to the stadium would be a riverwalk park, restaurant and retail outlets, and parking. Across the river, reachable by a new cable-stayed pedestrian bridge and situated north of the City of Pawtucket's Festival Pier, would be a mix of just over 200 units of housing, further restaurant and retail development, and another riverwalk park. Finally, at the so-called Apex site on Main Street, development would include an indoor sports center, a 200-room hotel, and commercial office space.

    The plan calls for Fortuitous Partners to invest between $310 million and $330 million of the project's total price tag, with the public sector's contribution targeted to be between $70 million and $90 million in infrastructure improvements (construction of the pedestrian bridge, streetscaping improvements, and development of the riverwalk parks).

    Rhode Island, Buffalo, and Queensboro, should they all materialize, will definitely help roll back the westward creep of the Eastern Conference.

    West:
    TAC, POR, RNO, LV, EB, LA, OC, SD, PHX
    SLC, COS, NM, ELP, RGV, SA, OKC, TUL

    East:
    HFD, QUE, NY, RI, BUF, BST, PIT, LDN, NC
    CHS, ATL, TB, BHM, MEM, LOU, IND, KC, DSM

    I'm presuming none of the teams in MLS markets survive, at least as Championship sides. Charlotte will supposedly be announced as the 30th MLS team this month.
