CPBL Expansion Opportunity

Discussion in the Around Asia forum
CPBL Expansion Opportunity
I have been posting a lot of updates on the Chinese Professional Baseball League and am very interested in knowning whether or not CPBL expansion is a possibility. I am involved in the rubber business in Malaysia and Thailand (Lam Eng Rubber Factory (M) Sdn. Bhd.) If all goes well, the company would go public and be listed on the Bursa Malaysia stock exchange.

But I would love to own a baseball team. It would be good advertisement for the business. It would allow more companies that buy rubber (ie. tire, condom, glove companies) to recognize the company's name. Lam Eng wants to have the capabilities to do more business with companies from China, Taiwan, and Japan. I was wondering whether or not the CPBL is intereted in expansion and what would be the expansion fees?

I'm not sure if CPBL expansion is in the cards right now. They would have to add at least 2 teams, wouldn't they? A uneven number of teams wouldn't be a viable option would it? I'm not sure, and would be interested in hearing the exapansion fee price.

Is there another company interested in throwing their hat into the CPBL? It might be like the Rakuten-Livedoor situation this off-season in Japan after the Orix-Kintestu merger. Two new expansion teams could be what the CPBL needs right now.

Again, it would be interesting to know what the expansion fees would be.
