Red Bull GmbH, makers of the famous energy drink, is looking to bring Major League Soccer’s MetroStars franchise into its fold, according to a report in the New York Daily News.
The MetroStars are currently owned by Los Angeles’ Anschutz Entertainment Group and play in Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
The Austria-based Red Bull owns the Red Bull Salzburg soccer club in the Austrian First Division. When Red Bull bought the club in April 2005, it renamed the team, which had be called SV WÃ¼stenrot Salzburg, in a rebranding effort.
The report said a similar renaming/rebranding would take place if the company buys the MetroStars.
Such a pairing makes perfect sense. Consumed on an empty stomach, Red Bull can induce the same sort of projectile vomitting as listening to one of NY/NJ GM Alexi Lalas’ CD’s.
