TFC to buy Leeds United?


Recommended Posts

Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment's search for an English football club appears to have focused on the North of England.

According to a report in the British newspaper the Sunday Mirror, MLSE has begun preliminary talks that would see the organization acquire Leeds United.

Leeds United currently competes in League One, England's third division, and would reportedly welcome investors that would provide the team with the financial might to return to the Premier League.

MLSE president Richard Peddie recently visited England last month to meet with a number of clubs, including Southhampton and Reading.

"It is a very interesting area where we feel many of our ideas would work," said Peddie.

MLSE currently owns the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Toronto Raptors and Major League Soccer franchise Toronto FC.

Wow. Crap wants to own crap.

It makes sense. MLSE likes teams that draw good crowds that don't really care if the team is good or not. The pension fund could rake in a lot of pounds.
