Dear Commissioner Garber,
First of all, let us thank you for taking the first step in what we hope is a long relationship between our city of Los Angeles and creating a true MLS franchise that all fans will support. In the past, many of us in the Black Army thought that such an endeavor would be a possibility. It is our wish that we can make this dream a possibility. We propose to help you find an ownership group that represents the diversity, winning attitude, and passion for this beautiful game.
We are also committed as a supporters group to purchasing the team ourselves so that we can never go through horrific ordeal that we endured under the ownership of Jorge Vergara and Angelica Fuentes. We did not enjoy protesting their reign and accept that it may have led to bad publicity. Nevertheless, we are firm in our beliefs that this can never happen in MLS and especially to a great soccer city like Los Angeles. Black Army is no actual army but a conglomerate of idealists who only wish to see second Los Angeles MLS franchise compete and be successful.
We will be looking to establish ourselves this season and start a fund drive to purchase this team. We do not request a discount but a fair chance to buy this club. We look forward to raising 70-100 million dollars before the end of the season. If a deal is made and the club is sold to a different owner, we will donate no less than 100% of the funds raised to MLS Works.
We have a high mountain to climb to meet our goal, but that will not stop our unwavering support for this club. Whatever, it is to be called or rebranded.
