In a long interview, Precourt drinks beer (not joking) and discusses Mapfre and Columbus

Precourt on his purchase of the Crew:

I saw an opportunity. You know we studied MLS for awhile, and we looked at opportunities. And I saw a real opportunity here [Columbus] as far as sports saturation and I saw a real path to the Crew being successful if we did some things to improve the fan experience, to improve the brand, the relevance, the product on the field. I think there’s a lot of good ingredients here in Columbus. In my life I’ve moved for the opportunity a number of times – I’ve lived on the east coast, on the west coast, I’ve lived in Texas, I live in California now, but geography wasn’t as important to me as being in a place where people care and there’s room for the club to grow.
