    Soccer - Disney's new synergy cash cow?

    Interesting news has come out in the last couple of months...

    ABC/ESPN worked a deal to air English broadcasts of the World Cup Soccar match.

    ABC/ESPN then worked a deal to air MLS finals.

    Now the latest escapade in Athletic film, Walt Disney Studio's presents - GOAL!

    It is a film that has been in Europe for a while, and has done quite well...

    Yesterday there was a press release that the trailer will air on ABC Sports

    ----------

    So someone tell me why ABC/ESPN killed NHL - Hockey for this?

    Was it that Eisner didn't see he could get any more milage out of the Mighty Ducks?

    Makes you wonder if Disney is going to purchase a Soccer team...

    Re: Soccer - Disney's new synergy cash cow?

    Goal did very well, and has many famous (well famous in the UK and Europe) British footballers in roles. Goal was made by Disney, and is part of a trilogy following an American-Mexican from an English football (sorry, soccer) team right up to the World Cup in the third film.

    Do you know what particular English clubs have sold rights to ABC/ESPN?
