In a recent article in Howler Magazine, soccer executive Peter Wilt published an article on soccer expansion in North America. The article discusses ten criteria for expansion in a number of North American cities with Hamilton regarded as the third best option within the “small market” segment.

With small market defined as cities with populations between 500k and 750k, Hamilton was ranked third ahead of Winnipeg, Manitoba and boasted Hamilton had a “great CFL venue that would showcase a pro soccer team very well”.
