JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Shad Khan officially welcomed members of Fulham FC into Jacksonville on Friday and answered questions about the future of his two franchises.
It's not the football gear members of Fulham FC are used to. The club captain, CEO and manager posed for pictures with Jaguars jerseys and NFL footballs.
Fulham FC manager Martin Jol praised Khan for his passion for the club.
Khan is diversifying his pro sport portfolio. He bought the team last week.
Khan thanked Fulham fans for embracing him and the Jacksonville community.
Khan says his new franchise will play preseason matches at EverBank Field next year, which will help boost the River City's recognition around the world.
"If you look at the eyeballs, the typical Fulham game has, you know, 3 or 4 million people," said Khan. "I think it really gives us a huge amount of upside to play especially starting with the friendlys and some of the preseason games."
Khan is traveling to Costa Rica this weekend to watch Fulham in a preseason match.
Khan says the Fulham staff is passionate about their jobs and loves the team.
