Default Relegation, will that ever work for MLS?

There have been thousand of debates of how relegation will never work for mls.

A lot of people argue that lower division teams are a bad business in American sports.

I dont know enough about American sports to have a realistic opinion about the subject.

One of the great things in the soccer world is that a team like the Charleston battery can move up to first division if they win second or third division.

What do you guys think?

Any of you know anything about it? Anybody think that it could be possible?

Thanks for the responses.

I think so.

It would be good too.

I don't know enough about the topic to have a professional opinion though.

What do you think?

unless the small teams spend money like the big clubs it will not happen.

Default Re: Relegation, will that ever work for MLS?

there has to be enough of a boost in income moving from 1 level to the next for there to be an incentive to spend at the lower level. And conversely it can't be the kiss of death financially for a team to be relegated I don't think that there is enough money in MLS to make it work yet but soon we will get to the point that teams will want to get in to MLS without a place for them. When that occurs we will have reached the level where a tiered system will work.

Default Re: Relegation, will that ever work for MLS?

Some people that claim to know a lot about American sports and about business say that lower division is a "terrible" business in America.

They say that relegation will never work...

That is kind of sad, in the soccer world, there is nothing better than watching a third division team from a small town winning their division and moving up the latter...

I would hate pay the 100 million dollar expansion franchise fee and be relegated the following year. That is why the MLS will never have relegation. Some parts of the European game will not work here and that's fine.
