Unlike club football leagues in other countries, Major League Soccer does not have promotion and relegation, soccer shirt and instead utilizes a franchise system similar to other professional sports leagues in the country. Ottawa Fury FC and Indy Eleven joined in 2014. Three teams were set to join the league in 2015-Jacksonville Armada FC, Virginia Cavalry FC, and Oklahoma City FC-but only the Jacksonville team actually began play.
