CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - FC Cincinnati GM Jeff Berding took to Twitter Wednesday, hours before Major League Soccer awarded Nashville one of two 2020 expansion bids.

For those interested, you can watch the Nashville announcement below.

Nashville, one of 12 cities to submit formal bids in January for expansion slots, was one of four finalists to present before the MLS Expansion Committee on Dec. 6.

So who will get the second 2020 expansion bid? Reports say we'll have to wait until after the new year to find out if it will be Cincinnati, Detroit, or Sacramento.

In a pair of Wednesday tweets, Berding encouraged fans to relax for now and enjoy the holiday season:

FC Cincinnati has already surpassed 15,000 season ticket holders for the 2018 season. In just two seasons as a franchise, the club is bringing in more fans a game than several MLS cities.

In June, FCC upset two MLS teams -- the Columbus Crew and Chicago Fire -- in the U.S. Open Cup.
