Philadelphia Wings Plan to Relocate Franchise

Philadelphia, PA (July 11, 2014) Ownership of the Philadelphia Wings, one of nine teams in the National Lacrosse League (NLL), plan to relocate the franchise for the 2015 season. The organization is currently taking part in discussions with a new strategic partner for re-location, pending NLL Board of Governor approval.

Fans that have placed deposits or paid in full for the 2015 season will be issued a full refund in the same manner in which they were paid within seven days.

"My love for the Wings and my connection with the city has made this move all the more difficult," said Wings Owner and Team President Michael French. "I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of our Philadelphia supporters over the past 28 years.

"The financial model in a market with so many sport and entertainment alternatives has proven to be unsustainable," added French. "Finding a new venue with new strategic partners was the only way to ensure financial stability."

The Philadelphia Wings are owned and operated by Philadelphia Wings L.P., whose principal owners are Michael French, Brad Brewster and Ted Goldthorpe.
