( NEW) OWNER, VANCOUVER WHITECAPS
Mr. Football Not many people know much about Greg Kerfoot, and he’d like to keep it that way —though it takes a pretty powerful person to turn soccer into a thing in North America. West Vancouver dwellers might know “Greg” as the guy from their beer-league hockey team, but they won’t likely know him as the millionaire who saved the Vancouver Whitecaps’ ego from extinction. Kerfoot took over the team in 2002, including their $100,000 worth of debt and their three full-time sta members. Now the team has an active fan base —due largely in part to tickets that are substantially more aordable than their Canuck neighbours—and MLS title aspirations that seem within reach.
