It has been over 3 months since the tour has ended. What are some of the impacts? Does the 'a rising tide raises all boats hypothesis' perceived to be correct? Is soccer perceived to be more 'cool' than before? (judging by the number of students wearing Man U stuff in Seattle, I believe it is a big yes). Did the tour in some way help MLS? A-league? Did the tour help soccer flourish in America? What can be learn from this Tour? (probably US is an emerging soccer market with huge $$$ potential. No wonder there are plans for World Club Championship in the U.S. for 2005).. Hype/Publicity sells.....Manchester United Tour brought people to see Manchester United (3 sell-outs). When Man U was not present, the games were not sell-out even when the teams were the like of AC Milan, Juventus, Barca or Boca Jrs. Probably next year, a Real Madrid, Liverpool + some other teams tour would be best named Real Madrid/Liverpool Tour (can I get my 0.0000001% of the profits for my idea Championsworld? Anyway, I am hopeful that a MLS team will get to participate.
