Default Philadelphia Wings relocate

Sad to see this happen.

Philadelphia, PA (July 11, 2014) - Ownership of the Philadelphia Wings, one of nine teams in the National Lacrosse League (NLL), plan to re-locate 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.

That is very sad to see...

I used to love it when Philly came in to play the Saints. They brought so many fans that even though they rooted for the wrong team, it made the place NHL-level loud. Even went down there twice and the arena was crazy and packed.

That being said, I went up to the NLL website and ran the numbers on their home games last season and the average was only about 7000. That's a big step down from a few years ago when they would easily see 13-15000+. Same thing happened on LI in their last few seasons.

West Chester or just north of the Delaware border could use a 6-7k arena for smaller shows and minor/smaller league teams like this. Wachovia or whatever it is right now is not enough for that city.

I actually don't think it'll be that far...I believe in 2015 we'll be seeing the Lehigh Valley Wings.
