Carmelo Anthony Buys Puerto Rican Football Team

Carmelo Anthony Buys Puerto Rican Football TeamNew York Knicks’ forward Carmelo Anthony is putting his best foot forward in his latest venture. Anthony, a frequent visitor to Puerto Rico for his training, has purchased the Puerto Rico Football Club, part of the NASL, a second tier league in pay per head sportsbook software.

In an effort to diversify himself, Anthony felt that the soccer team was a good investment.

“Basketball is my No. 1 thing,” Anthony told ESPN. “I’m very hands-on, but it’s more about taking the time now during the offseason. I spend a lot of time in Puerto Rico training. I’ll do like a mini-training camp down there. Right now it’s about putting the right people in place so that when I’m back to my regular job, basketball is my main focus. I’ll have a solid group of people running (Puerto Rico FC) on a day-to-day basis.”

Anthony isn’t the only NBA star to get involved in soccer, with Steve Nash partnering with others in the Vancouver Whitecaps and Lebron James holding a small stake of the Fenway Group, which owns the Liverpool Football Club, part of the English Premier League, a favorite in pay per head sportsbook software.

“I just always kept it to myself and among my circle,” he said. “Going to games, sneaking into games and just watching and being around the sport over the years. The more time I started spending in Puerto Rico over the past six, seven years I realized that there was kind of a void down there on my island. The island didn’t really have anything that they could kind of call their own, that they could represent not just on the island but from a global standpoint.”

The team will begin playing in the league in the 2016 season at Bayamon, which is situated 5 kilometers from the Puerto Rican capital of San Juan.

Anthony has been on the injury list since having surgery last February. He is scheduled to begin training with the rest of the team in September. He told ESPN that he is ahead of the schedule for his recovery versus what was predicted for him.

The Knicks finished in second last place in the regular season with pay per head sportsbook software with 17 wins, only one better than Minnesota at 16.
