The identity of Toronto Wolfpack’s prospective new owner has emerged.
League Express can reveal the man behind the bid is Carlo LiVolsi, a Toronto businessman who has previous involvement with the club.
LiVolsi is the founder of Wolf Grooming, who became the club’s official grooming product partner in 2019.
Little is known about LiVolsi outside Canada, but he is involved at board level of several companies in North America and was a founding stakeholder of the Wolfpack back in 2016.
His major involvement is with Apex Branded Solutions, a company that works in the wholesale distribution of prescription drugs, proprietary drugs and toiletries. LiVolsi is chief executive and President of the company and he is a director of several other Canadian companies.
He was introduced to Super League chief executive Robert Elstone on Tuesday and the Wolfpack hope to introduce him to Super League club executives in the coming weeks. Wolfpack Chairman Bob Hunter said last week that they hoped to have a call with LiVolsi and the Super League owners in the near future.
The Wolfpack lodged their documentation for readmission to Super League on Tuesday and initial feedback from the RFL and Super League is expected in the coming days.
