Melo Interested In Owning North American Soccer Team


Carmelo Anthony is interested in expanding his growing portfolio even more — possibly branching out into the sports ownership business.

According to the New York Times, Melo is touring the Caribbean with hopes of securing an ownership role in the North American Soccer League.

The Knicks star visited Puerto Rico this month to explore potential stadium sites for either a new team or to revive the Puerto Rico Islanders, which were disbanded in 2012, according to a report from the website Empire of Soccer.
Anthony’s father hails from Puerto Rico. The NASL is the de facto second-tier North American league after MLS.
Anthony traveled to Cuba with the New York Cosmos as a “guest of the league,” the report said, for their historic match Tuesday against the country’s national team.

Just another day in the life of the $125 million man.
