“Oh absolutely,” Allgood said. “That is of keen interest to (Prodigal LLC), because regional rivalries are great, and so we have talked to USL Pro about their plans to do that.”

“They're on that same radar screen that I referred to before,” Holt said. “Certainly, we'll accelerate the process to get in there. Again, the reason we weren't in Oklahoma City two or three years ago is because all the things have to be in place for you to go forward.
