This interesting tidbit was brought to our attention on by an anonymous user on the BigSoccer message boards.
It would seem that the law firm that assisted with getting Pele his work visa in the US, has also represented foreign investors in their acquisition of a 50% interest in the New York Cosmos. This was in September 2010, which was about a month or so after Pele announced at Flushing Meadows Park that the New York Cosmos were back.
So it seems there is foreign investment in the Cosmos and now the fans will wonder who.
