WPS's Breakers hope to land new majority owner

The Boston Breakers are hoping that a spike in interest in women's soccer will help them land a new majority owner. Gary Loveman has been looking to sell his majority share of the WPS club, according to Jeff Kassouf.

“The Breakers have not set a specific timetable to conclude a sale, but wanted to take advantage of the additional attention focused on the team now in order to facilitate conversations with potential investors,” General Manager Andy Crossley said. “This will afford the club the best opportunity to enter the offseason with ownership settled and moving forward with roster development, sponsorship development and ticket sales for 2012.”

The Breakers drew a season-high 7,118 fans for Saturday's game against magicJack with Abby Wambach. By comparison, MLS's Revs drew only 11,523 for their game at Gillette Stadium.

“We have had local people in Boston inquire about investing in the team over the past several weeks,” Crossley said. “These have been very preliminary conversations so far. But it’s been a promising development that has grown out of the popularity that women’s soccer has enjoyed in this World Cup year.”
