ELK GROVE (CBS13) – Elk Grove Mayor Elect Gary Davis has met with MLS Commissioner Don Garber and says the city is moving closer to getting a professional soccer team.
On Saturday, Davis was invited to the MLS Cup in Los Angeles and met with Gerber.
“Commissioner Garber is interested in this market and, due to our proximity to the Central Valley, Elk Grove specifically. He laid out a few parameters – all of which we are already well under way in meeting,” said Davis in describing the meeting. “If done right, we have an opportunity to et a real professional soccer team in Elk Grove.”
Elk Grove signed an exclusivity agreement with a potential ownership team several months ago. Davis also says talks to build a soccer-specific stadium in Elk Grove are moving forward.
