BOB YOUNG TO SEEK USL SOCCER FRANCHISE FOR HAMILTON
Hamilton, Ontario – Bob Young, owner of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, announced today that the team has begun the process of applying for a United Soccer League (USL) franchise for the city of Hamilton, contingent on the construction of a new stadium in Hamilton.
Young remarked, "As a minority owner of the USL’s Carolina Railhawks, I'm personally aware of the growing popularity of USL soccer across North America and would be thrilled to see a Hamilton team play in a league with the great Montreal Impact and Vancouver Whitecaps franchises."
"We have been investigating the economic viability of a professional soccer team in Hamilton for a number of years and with the possibility of a new stadium on the horizon, we felt that this is the right time to begin the application process.?
"Up yours MLS!!!!!"
