American soccer’s next Cincinnati is… Omaha?

It is important to note the growing chorus of fans, of which I’d include myself, concerned about the quality of the product itself as MLS expands to 24 teams by 2020.

Nearly all European leagues are capped at 20 and the German Bundesliga only has 18 teams — and these are mature, football/soccer-mad countries and cultures packed w/ the world’s greatest players.

Don’t know if expansion is necessary from a league-survival standpoint, but I’d rather see promotion/relegation b/w MLS-NASL-USL brought into the American pro game rather than a dilution of the product for growth’s sake.
