Boca Juniors USA?

I was watching the MLS game between the New York Red Bulls and DC United on Telefutura. The announcers discussed an interesting potential development. Boca Juniors of Argentina may have a team in the MLS for 2008. Much in the same fashion as Chiva USA in Los Angeles.

Presently, Boca is in North America for a series of games. They had been in the Phoenix area participating in the Pan American Cup. They will play in Salt Lake City versus Real Salt Lake on Tuesday. If I understood correctly, they will also play a friendly in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida against the Haitian National Team next Saturday.

Apparently, CABJ (Boca Juniors Athletic Club) wants to expand beyond Buenos Aires. While this deal is still under discussion, it would represent another significant development for North American soccer. Boca is one of the best teams in the world, and has a strong fan base already in the United States. According to Telefutura, the proposed cities for this new franchise would either be Miami or New York.
