Q and A: Anthony Precourt

By Michael Arace | July 14, 2016

PRECOURT: First of all, I’d say that Cincinnati is a great market for Crew SC. We’ve got a lot season-ticket holders coming up from Cincinnati for our games. The second thing I’d say is I cheer for club soccer in America. So, the early success they’ve had is great to see. It’s great for the sport and they should be proud of what they’ve done. I hope that it’s sustainable. They’ve got out of the gates fast. Let’s see if they can keep it up. It has worked so far. I’m a new member of the MLS expansion committee, which is a sub-committee of the board. We’re charged with looking at markets for expansion, and it’ll be interesting to see how Cincinnati does down the road. - Source Dispatch
