St. Louis and Philadelphia are entering the final weeks of competition to become the host of a new Major League Soccer expansion team. One city has stadium plans, the other has investors. Neither has both.
"St. Louis has a stadium deal, but not enough wealthy investors."
"Philadelphia has rich investors, but no commitment for a stadium."
"That's how the competition stands as the bidding for a pro soccer expansion team enters its final weeks, with league officials expected to announce the winner in January."
"How proponents in each city can enhance their plans will help determine if their city is picked to host Major League Soccer's 16th team."
