Could America Ever Produce a Sports “Super Club?”
As soccer clubs in Europe like FC Barcelona begin to rake in over $750 million dollars a year, Falk College Sports Management Professor Rick Burton looked into if this kind of growth, and revenue, for Sports Business Daily, and if anything like this could ever persist in the United States market.
“So here is our curiosity for the day: Could the L.A. Galaxy or New York Red Bulls be a mega-club a decade from now? How about the Warriors or a yet-to-be-named esports mega-club,” Burton asks? “This is interesting to ponder but one thing seems certain. Monster revenue gains and sizzling profitability rates by select European football clubs is attractive catnip to America’s mightiest team owners.”
