CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) People familiar with the situation say Charlotte will be the home of a Major League Soccer expansion team.

The people spoke to The Associated Press Friday on condition of anonymity because no public announcement has been made about the team.

Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper and his media group sent out emails saying a “major announcement” will be coming Tuesday. The email states that Tepper, Charlotte mayor Vy Lyles and additional guests will be at the announcement.
