On April 18, 2019, Major League Soccer announced a strategic plan to expand to 30 teams by 2021. MLS currently comprises 24 teams - 3 in Canada, and the rest in the United States. Expanding to 30 teams would make it the biggest professional league in world football in terms of number of clubs and players. With 4 teams arriving to the league in the past 3 years and 4 more on their way by 2021, things are really becoming a bit crazy in the North American soccer scene. Ultimately, the decision from an economic standpoint is a wise one for the league. More clubs = more money, greater outreach and greater attention. But it would throw certain things into chaos, such as scheduling, fairness of scheduling, and the disparities in between the caliber of teams and players.
