Oh, you never know, some Americans may just have heard of other places. Take Hull for instance. Some may just have heard of William Wilberforce given that he decided to start the movement for the abolition of slavery. Or J Arthur Rank. I think he may have started a little film company over there.


Given that most UK residents would be unaware of who Wilberforce was, I find it highly unlikely that any Americans would know him. As for Slavery, they didn't abolish it in the USA for nigh on 35 years after the British did.
The Rank organisation was a uniquely British institution which owned British Film companies and British Cinemas and therefore is unlikely to resonate with our America cousins.....even the older ones who would have referred to Rank Xerox before it became just Xerox.

Given 70% of Americans do not have a passport and of the 30% that do,50% of them are in the Military, it is highly likely that other than London, most of the UK could well be Mordor to them.
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Wakefield is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

Half these teams will be in Canada - a country with very strong ties with the UK and a very well travelled populace.
US citizens might be less well travelled, but there are literally hundreds of millions of them - we only need a tiny fraction to get involved.

nice looking stadium but not much around it except industry. situated in new jersey about 6 miles away from manhatten. should be well placed to draw in fans from the new york side and new jersey. more info on the stadium here wonder if red bull are on board with the team sponsorship
