A summary of the statements made by James Pallotta at the 'Sports Decision Maker' summit, an annual event organized in London by Sports Business. The words of the American patron of Rome are reported by the Corriere dello Sport.
"Where are we with the stadium? No one knows how much they used to build the Colosseum , but I believe we are close to each other ". «The revenues of AS Roma have grown in direct proportion to the engagement that the club has been able to achieve on the web. I believe the digital department of Rome is the best in the sports field ».
«The biggest challenge that the MLS must overcome is the eternal confrontation with European leagues. There are limitations that do not allow it to grow and there will never be the chance to attract the great champions: I will probably already be dead when it has become of global interest.
At the moment it is a good local competition but many American fans prefer to see the challenges of the Premier League and Serie A: the possible creation of a European super league would lead some races to be played even on weekends, slowing down even more the growth of the MLS " .
