Why purchase USL? Seriously? It's taken MLS nearly 30 years to get to 30 teams across the nation and Canada. Building out a second division from scratch would cost too much. Purchasing USL not only would cost far less, but is also turnkey. USL already meats the PLS D2 requirements, as well as the PLS D3 requirements. There are quite a few USL teams who have infrastructure in place and/or are planning to build. MLS could then fold USL League One/Two into Next Pro which would immediately build out the lower divisions. As far as revenue sharing, yes MLS would receive the largest portion, likely in that 60-65% range. USL would then get 20-25%, and Next Pro whatever is left. As far as the women's game. Why should we separate the professional leagues? Having the ability to share resources and knowledge, as well as facilities would lift the women's game to new heights as well as provide it the sustained long term stability and viability it's never had. It's works in Australia with the NRL/NWRL and the A League/W A-League.
