..from 2 anonymous backers from NY and London as well as confirming that they will play out of the Red Bull Arena (which is in New Jersey BTW, not New York.)
Steve Mascord also tweets that they have letters of Intent from sponsors in the world of air travel and Hotels, with the Players for this pipe dream flying business class :lol:
2020 is when they expect to start and have budgeted for 5k games in year 1....

.....so this PE teacher and online brochure printer plans to have an 80% empty stadium, in a borough that isn't New York for a team called New York in a sport that most Americans have never heard of and he has £5,000,000 in backing.

February can't come too quickly :CRAZY: :CRAZY: :CRAZY: and remember, Brian Noble and David Argyle where already whinging about extra costs at the end of last season, so £5 million won't last long.
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 Widnes 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:

We get it, you don’t want North American teams to succeed.

Not at all....... But there's no joined up thinking going on here...... Argyle has abandon developing Canadian players and this bloke has no Pedigree in anything about running a pro sports club let alone an expansion one as is shown by their supposed target of 5k fans in a 25k seat stadium......

but according to your signature you don't need away fans so why have home ones
“The bond between the players is something I’ve never had with any other club. Everyone comes into one and we’re all one group. Whenever we get a new signing, everyone just embraces the culture. It’s what I love about this club and I just can’t wait for the journey ahead.”

You do no new jersey is just the other side of the river, like over a couple of bridges, and millions live in that part of new jersey that makes up the New York metropolitan area,and commute to Manhattan daily, its just like north and south London, and the biggest fact of all, met life stadium home of the New York jets and giants is in new jersey. so whats your point.

Indeed. New York is a state as well as a city, and the city of New York consists of the 'five boroughs' of Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island AND New Jersey.

New Jersey is state. With Jersey city, NJ sat on the Hudson just opposite Manhattan.

if someone decided to build, say, wakefield a stadium 10 miles away from the city would it be the same issue?
