What They're Saying: Merritt Paulson

“We do need to get people with more resources into the league, who are willing to make the financial investment and who are in situations where they control their own facilities. I believe to grow the league and to position the league for success, we have to be willing to invest intelligently, rather than just focus on cutting expenses.”

-- Portland Thorns owner Merritt Paulson on the need to find owners who are willing to take on a greater investment in the NWSL, which is expected to take on more of the day-to-day operations of the league (and financial responsibilities) from U.S. Soccer and have to beef up NWSL Media, the commercial arm of the league, where staff was reduced following the breakup of the joint venture between the NWSL and A+E Networks.
