Investor implies that someone will put money in hoping to get something back. Very few owners of sports clubs EVER get anything fiscal back, so unless these people have other motives or are life-long Salford/RL fans, then there's something else that they want and are using Salford as a stepping stone.....wasn't there rumours of a casino in the mix on or near the site of the ground?
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:
