CAROLINA IN MY MIND: MLL Charlotte Hounds President & Managing Partner Jim McPhilliamy said that he is "leading a group to buy the franchise rights" of the USL Pro Charlotte Eagles, and that he "intends to put the new team at Memorial Stadium" for the '15 season. He added that the "ultimate goal" is to bring MLS to Charlotte by '20. In Charlotte, David Scott noted the sale "must be approved by the USL." McPhilliamy said that the Hounds group "has an agreement in place to acquire the rights for about $500,000 at the end of the season" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 1/16).
