This is absolutely fantasy. Those "big markets" are London and Paris. That's it. Stern claimed he needed 5 cities. Well, they don't exist. Because they all have their own clubs that they already support with incredible dedication and passion.
These markets simply don't exist because they ALREADY are totally owned by the existing local clubs.
London and Paris...yes. That's 2, not 5.
