October 22, 2015 – Media Mention
The Deal

John Goldman was quoted in The Deal regarding his work for New York attorney Joe Tacopina in Tacopina's recent acquisition of the Italian fourth-division soccer club, Venezia F.C. Goldman has joined the team’s board of directors and will work with a group of investors to apply the American sports business model to the franchise, including building a new stadium, maximizing revenues and returning the team to Serie A in the next 40-48 months. "We have no obligations to a seller, which gives us a nice runway to fund the operations," said Goldman. "What we've been able to do so far is assemble a great management team and a real plan to improve the team. The buzz around the team is already so tremendous."
