More info on the DC buyers
It looks like the group working with Kevin Payne to buy DC United
are developers from nearby Richmond
Sounds to me like buying the team is what will help them get the facility built and be able to create income. AEG's done the groundwork, they just wanna take over.
The fact that it's now in the media sounds to me like they are getting close to finalizing the deal.
$20 Million for an MLS franchise? Looks like those that invested in the league 10 years ago are getting some return on their investment now that AEG have figured out how to make some money from teams.
We'll see where this goes.
