I don't know how much of this is in the public domain already, but.... AEG is buying the pre-Libertadores tournament and moving it to the Home Depot Center. MLS will be part of this tournament - and hence, Copa Libertadores - in the very near future. The Galaxy are exploring partnerships with Real Madrid, Manchester United, or an unnamed other Premiership team. The partnerships will include player development, marketing. This is part of what Doug Hamilton referred to as a "five year plan." Within 30 days at the next MLS board meeting, presumably around the time of MLS Cup, MLS will announce its expansion candidates for 2005. It will be Cleveland and wherever Chivas ends up. Chivas hasn't given up on Los Angeles, AEG still isn't amused by the idea. The Home Depot Center will host Olympic qualifiers and World Cup qualifiers. One assumes those games won't be against Mexico or Central American teams, but who knows. Real Madrid will tour the US next summer, and apparently this time AEG will be a part of it. As far as the Los Angeles stop, Real hasn't decided between the Rose Bowl and the Home Depot Center. According to Liewecke, Manchester United have told him they feel they made a mistake playing in the Coliseum this summer. Manchester United is also planning a return trip in the near future. AEG will establish a 24 hour, 7 day a week cable soccer channel. AEG negotiated to buy the WUSA TV rights, but were unable to come to an agreement. According to Leiwecke, Anschutz wants to be "part of the solution, but not the only solution." Leiwecke, in connection with why AEG isn't underwriting WUSA as well as MLS, said that MLS has so far lost $150 million. As of the players' lawsuit of a couple of years ago, that figure was $250 million. Either Leiwecke is inaccurate, or MLS has made $100 million in profit in the past couple of years. This was all at the Galaxy season ticket holder "Town Hall" meeting before the playoff game yesterday.
