Charlie Stillitanom, who was venue director for the World Cup games at Giants Stadium, has been in negotiations with a Major League Soccer potential owner in the NY area, according to a report in Sunday's Newark STAR-LEDGER. "Although he wouldn't say who it is, he did admit that it isn't Time Warner Inc., the corporation that still owns the Cosmos' rights." It seems Time Warner is not interested in owning a MLS franchise, but they are interested in being involved in a marketing contract similar to the World Cup. the STAR-LEDGER's Ike Kuhns notes that "time is becoming critical" for MLS if it is to be "marketed properly" for an April '95 startup. Kuhns adds to expect announcements in early November (Newark STAR-LEDGER, 10/23).
