Interview with Toronto Wolfpack owner.

Post by NRL&NFLweLaughATafl »

Interview with Canadian Eric Perez who started Toronto Wolfpack and how he became a Rugby League convert.
There are some very interesting things ahead for the sport in Canada.
Apparently 3000 tickets are already sold for their first match next year.
And games will be shown on a local Canadian national broadcaster.
Even a long term goal to make Superleague a bigger competion than the NRL.
Also looking at getting Grid Iron players that missed out on NFL or CFL selection to trial to play for the Wolfpack.

I guess time will tell how it all goes. But he is a visionary.

Interview starts at 5:45 mins

They've already sold 3000 individual season thickets so far according to the interview. He expects them to average at least 10k off the bat, good luck.
