A-Rod’s Lawyer Goes for Hat Trick with Venezia FC Buy
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."
