I think Cincinnati's best chance would be to start a 2nd tier club. I think at some point in the future, if soccer continues to grow, there is a good chance that a European promotion/relegation system will take hold in US soccer. I think MLS will grow to 24 teams in the next 8 years or so and then the growth after that will be more focused on a pyramid system.

MLS is going to add a 2nd and maybe even a 3rd NYC team. Orlando, Atlanta and Carolina all have teams now that could be looked at and there have been rumors about Detroit and Minneapolis as well. Like someone else mentioned, a lot of it has to do with the ownership group and the location is somewhat secondary.
