New Burnley chairman Pace admits MLS partnership on agenda

New Burnley chairman Alan Pace admits they have plans to enter a partnership with a MLS club.

Pace is the managing partner of the Delaware-based ALK Capital investment group, which completed its takeover of the Clarets on New Year's Eve.

The idea of partnering with another club had already been raised and, asked if that could be a Major League Soccer team, Pace said: “Yes, it's crossed our minds.

“There's probably some opportunities, especially in America, for Burnley that I can see that would be really great going forward. I'd like to see that."

Pace was formerly chief executive of MLS outfit Real Salt Lake and ALK were close to taking over Sheffield United in 2019.
