San Diego Padres owner among those interested in MLS franchise

90+ takes a look back at the best moments from Week 15 of the 2016 Major League Soccer season.

SAN DIEGO -- Padres lead investor Peter Seidler is one of three prominent San Diegans interested in bringing a Major League Soccer expansion team to San Diego, apparently with the idea of eventually sharing a stadium with San Diego State's football team.

The other two are retired Qualcomm executive Steve Altman and Mike Stone of FS Investors. They are joined by Nick Stone, who works for Mike Stone and is managing the project on their behalf. Nick Stone and Mike Stone are not related.

Seidler tells The Associated Press that a soccer-specific stadium "would be a really cool venue for San Diego," just like Petco Park, home of the Padres.

SDSU shares aging Qualcomm Stadium with the NFL's Chargers, who want a new stadium downtown.

Seidler is a nephew of former Los Angeles Dodgers owner Peter O'Malley.
