What They're Saying: Mark Greenberg

“It’s semi-frustrating that we’ve been having these conversations with the NWSL for at least a year now, and we have a strong indication that we are going to get the franchise. We don’t have in our hands a preliminary letter [awarding us the team]. Yeah, I find it a little frustrating, frankly. We’re trying to get going and every moment that goes by without a letter of award from NWSL, it gets a little more difficult to accomplish that.”

-- Connecticut real estate investor Mark Greenberg on the efforts to bring an NWSL expansion team in 2020 to Windsor, Connecticut, where plans to build a soccer stadium for the team are on hold while its awaits approval from the NWSL board of governors, which meets in May. The plan would be for World Cup and Olympic winner Kristine Lilly to serve as president overseeing the soccer side and Mohegan Sun Sports -- which owns and operates the WNBA’s Connecticut Sun and the National Lacrosse League’s New England Black Wolves -- handling the business side (ticketing and marketing). Also spearheading the expansion bid are T.J. Clynch and long-time soccer executive Thom Meredith. (The Equalizer)
