Default Ownership Groups

Do any of these "new teams" have ownership groups? Or is this an "if you build it they will come" sort of deal.

Sorry,I am just now able to get to this.

The answer was Yes and No...

Each Ownership group approached us. And we would not have launched this without having at least 6 owners, not 6 markets without owners..

Well, it appears at least 3 more teams have nicknames now:

Say hello to the Austin Turfcats, Lafayette Mudbugs, and Texas Titans (Pasadena)!

The owners are listed in the SIFL's updated press release.

Team names, I found out by looking at several news articles.
