Report: Mets might buy MLS team

The New York Mets are reportedly interested in purchasing a Major League Soccer expansion team after finishing construction of their new $600 million home Citi Field.

The club's executive vice president David Howard said an MLS team likely would play in a different venue that would give the Mets a chance to host other events as well.

"We're not resting," Howard said in an interview with Bloomberg Radio's "On the Ball" program, airing Sept. 13. "Before even Citi Field is completed, we're looking to see what might be next for us. There's a lot of opportunity and potential."

Major League Soccer has 14 teams throughout the U.S. and Canada, and plans to expand to 18 by 2011. The Seattle Sounders will start play next season, with a yet-to-be named team in Philadelphia in 2010.
