There have often been conversations and dreams of building a fan-ownership model for clubs that we see in Germany, England, the rest of Europe, and throughout the world. The tricky business of soccer in the US and ownership laws have made that difficult. But Peter Wilt of NISA has teamed up with Cutting Edge Capital to try to create a model they think can be replicated throughout the US. They are talking to clubs around the country about building fans into the ownership structure. Wilt and Kim Arnone from Cutting Edge Capital join Wes on the podcast to talk through what this might look like.
