Looks like Freddy got fingered.
The Daily News reports Mets owners would like to see an expansion Major League Soccer team play at Citi Field. However, a league spokesman said MLS is uninterested in that plan. The league has been pursuing a new stadium at nearby Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, although there has been some opposition from groups against using parkland for the project.
The rekindled Cosmos, currently set to begin playing in the NASL at Hofstra in the fall, would be a strong candidate to move up to MLS and play in any Queens stadium.
“An MLS team at Citi Field is a nonstarter for us,” MLS spokesperson Rita Heller told the newspaper. “A soccer stadium in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park is a win for soccer fans, a win for the Queens community and a win for economic development.”
