"The last 48 hours have been an incredible whirlwind of emotions for me and my family," said Paul Lapointe, the owner and founder of the Twisters. "Now that the agreement has been signed, I can look back on the past eleven seasons and see that the vision I had when I started the Twisters and the American Indoor Soccer League has finally come to fruition. We were just waiting to be accepted by the most respected group the sport has to offer. We had many options and we would have not continued this season with anyone except this group of owners who understand teamwork outside the lines. This is right for the AISL and the Massachusetts Twisters."
