An all-star soccer game? The new US president of Chelsea, American Todd Boehle, on Tuesday floated the idea of a match bringing together the best players in the English Premier League that would oppose a team from the north and a team from the south of England, like the “all-star-game” of American sports.
“We think you can easily have an ‘All-Star Game’ that puts a team from the North against a team from the South and that can benefit the entire Premier League financially,” Buhle said at a forum in New York. organisation.
Buhli, who co-owns the Blues and also has shares in the Los Angeles Dodgers (baseball) and the Lakers (basketball), said he has already pitched the idea to his Premier League peers.
“People want more money for the entire English football pyramid. In this year’s MLB All-Star game, we made $200 million (€200 million) just on Monday and Tuesday,” Buhle said.
In the United States, Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association, which governs basketball, organize All-Star games that highlight the best players from their teams or conferences.
