Franchise Notes: Rangers Chair Believes Some Shareholders Have Criminal Links

Scottish Premiership side Rangers Chair Dave King told a court that he "suspects some shareholders in the club have links" to organized crime. At the Court of Session of Edinburgh, King said that he is now "100% committed" to making an offer for the remainder of the club's shareholding. He was ordered to do so after being found to have worked with others when taking control of the club in '15. But King said that he "could not make an offer to four shareholders because of their claimed criminal links" (BBC, 11/30).

Tottenham will run a ballot of its season ticket holders in order to "give 6,000 lucky fans a first look at their new stadium." The "specially-arranged familiarisation event" will take place on Dec. 16 and will give "the chance to visit and explore the South Stand and podium areas" (London DAILY MAIL, 11/30).

The Pakistan Cricket Board invited interested bidders for the sale of the sixth team of the Pakistan Super League to "replace the defaulting franchise Multan Sultans," whose contract was terminated by the PCB due to its inability to meet the financial obligations under the PSL agreement. The bidders are asked to collect the bidding documents from the PCB offices by Dec. 14 and the financial proposal of the technically qualified bidders will be open on Dec. 18 at 4pm (DAWN, 12/1).
