I had the pleasure recently of meeting with two of the owners of the Wenatchee United Football Club of the fledging Evergreen Premier League. Ivan Arroyo and Juan Valle stopped by the Sports Council and enthusiastically laid out their initial plans for their opening season, which will run from May through July 2014.

Like most people interested in sports, I’ve seen teams and organizations come and go. One of the culprits that can rear its ugly head is when ownership is in it for the wrong reasons — ego, for example. Instead of running it like a business, they play with it like a toy. This group is already taking steps to make sure that doesn’t happen.
