It had been mentioned in a couple other threads. So thought I would start a thread for the Flash in the NPSL folder. Here's a recent article about Eric Wynalda joining the managment team and also being an investor. It also mentions joining the NPSL for 2011. http://www.cubemonster.com/2010/12/04/eric-wynalda-san-diego-flash-soccer/ I still don't really get the funding / ownership model that they are trying to have. Here's what their managing partner posted in the Soccer Business group on Linked In. Hello, along with my Partners Warren Barton and Eric Wynalda, we have brought a Professional Soccer Club to San Diego, Ca; The San Diego Flash. In 2010, we completed a successful Charity / Exhibition Season and will begin league play in 2011. Through over 24 years of experience in the Investment Banking industry, I have created a unique investment opportunity. We have set up our Corporation to allow others to be Part-Owners in the growth of our Club/Organization; before we take the Company public. (positions are limited). Profit Potential: We believe San Diego, next to México, is one of the best locations in the U.S. for Professional Soccer to expand and prosper. Particularly for the youth talent already here. We currently have 'friendly' relationships with Méxican Clubs in the area. Soccer Clubs are not generally money makers. So, on the Business Side: Through partnerships with local youth clubs, we have set up a San Diego Flash Soccer Academy Network; under the direction of Warren Barton and Eric Wynalda. Our Mission: To show local Youth Players of ALL ages, the Dream of playing Soccer at higher levels. By them seeing Pro Players in action, in person, we can bring all the youth players in San Diego County up; under the banner of the San Diego Flash. We are also launching Exclusive Internet Projects that will feature Warren Barton, Eric Wynalda and other High-Profile Soccer Stars who they know; that we believe has tremendous upside potential. Do you agree that San Diego is a good location for Pro Soccer? We invite contacts in the LinkedIn Community to review our Business Plan for possible investment.
