LET’S WAIT AND SEE: While Marathe did not go into specifics of the deal, he said that there are no immediate plans for further partnerships between the two clubs. The 49ers will send a delegation to England during the next several weeks to identify areas where they could help. Marathe said, "Right now we are doing sort of a diagnostic and spending some time evaluating, looking into where are areas we can help. If there is a longer term business relationship between the two of us, then that will form." The question of what the 49ers get out of this agreement remains unanswered.
