Clark Hunt Once Again States Committment To Crew While Still Looking For Local Investors
Published March 5, 2013
CREW CUT? Hunt regarding whether or not HSG would sell the club said, "No. Our goal is to [be] successful with the Goal 10K campaign and also to find additional local investors, and really the two go together." As far as the club's goals of finding a stadium naming-rights sponsor and reaching 10,000 season-ticket holders, Hunt said that naming rights "might be of bigger importance." Should the Crew achieve those two goals plus the third goal of finding local investors, Hunt said, "I think it would mean for the first time in the history of the organization we would be a financially stable enterprise that's at least in a break-even situation in the league." He added that he is "pleased with the job" team President & GM Mark McCullers is doing (DISPATCH.com, 3/3).
