Soccer Matters on Facebook provided an expanded look at the new logo:

Expansion teams from New York City and Orlando will enter the league next season, making MLS a larger and more significant enterprise than ever before (21 teams total).

MLS released a teaser video regarding the new logo, which showcases the ability of every club to tailor the logo to its unique color schemes:
