NFL's Panthers owner wants MLS team in Charlotte

Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper and team president Tom Glick will travel to New York next week and meet with Major League Soccer officials in an effort to convince them to bring an expansion team to Charlotte, North Carolina.

Tepper has been working to bring an MLS team to Charlotte since purchasing the Panthers last summer.

Glick believes "the region deserves it. We think the region will support it, and we are confident of that."

He says the goal is to land an MLS team as soon as possible.

MLS will announce two expansion teams by July 31.

Glick spoke Tuesday at a news conference to announce Charlotte will host an International Champions Cup game for the next five years. Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium hosted two CONCACAF Gold Cup matches last month attracting more than 59,000 fans.
