New Toronto Wolfpack rugby league team won't divulge its ownership

TORONTO — The Toronto Wolfpack, a fledgling rugby league side launched this week, says it won't divulge its ownership.

On Wednesday, team founder and CEO Eric Perez said the ownership consortium consists of 10 businessmen who "all made their money in mining and resources."

"Some Canadian, a couple Australians, mostly Canadians though," he added.

Asked for a list of the owners, a club spokeswoman said Thursday via email: "The team is private and investor names aren't public information."

The Wolfpack plans to play in the third tier of English rugby league starting in March 2017.
