Sacramento made a bid last fall to get one of 2 expansion teams- and was one of 4 finalists. Major League Soccer chose to award teams to Nashville and Cincinnati.
Commissioner Don Garber said in December, when he made the Nashville announcement , Sacramento “has some things to finalize with their ownership group.”
Sacramento was once considered the front-runner to get a Major League team. After acknowledging the club had a funding gap, Nagle outlined a three-part plan to strengthen Sacramento’s bid: Bringing in a new major investor, adding additional limited partners and mobilizing community support.
Dr. Fisher is a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills. According to his website , he is the surgeon who originated the TV show  Extreme Makeover.
