It could easily support a team and draw WAY more fans than most teams in small markets here in the US.
Also, Mexico city should have a team. Despite Mexico overall being a 2nd world country Mexico city is in fact HUGE. There would be enough fans.
You think that you are going to get guys to go play in Tokyo all summer?
