Major league soccer coming to San Diego

SAN DIEGO (CBS / KYMA, KECY) - The growth of professional soccer in San Diego was revealed Thursday morning when Major League Soccer (MLS) announced during a news conference at Snapdragon Stadium that an MLS team will be coming to the city.

The new team will play in Snapdragon Stadium in 2025, a year before the United States will join Mexico and Canada in hosting the 2026 World Cup. 

The team name was not announced at the press conference but during a post-event interview with CBS's Jake Garegnani, new team CEO Tom Penn said the team would be called either “San Diego Football Club” or “Football Club of San Diego”.
