Elk Grove Mayor-elect Gary Davis discusses locating a MLS team to the city.
As being reported this morning by the Sacramento Bee, Elk Grove Mayor-Elect Gary Davis met this weekend with Major League Soccer (MLS) Commissioner Don Gerber to discuss the possibility of locating a franchise in the city.

According to the report, Davis and Gerber met this weekend in Los Angeles to discuss the possibility of locating a team in the area that would be led by former Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez. A stadium to house a possible team would be located in the city's so-called Southeast Policy Area (SEPA) according to Davis.

SEPA is the city's last undeveloped area and is roughly 1,200 acres in size. Earlier this year the city of Elk Grove held a series of workshops soliciting input on how the area should be built-out.

The story did not mention how any possible stadium would be financed.
