CEO Mark Frisch Issues Statement About Armada's Future
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jacksonville Armada FC owner and CEO Mark Frisch issued the following statement today regarding the future of the club.
Dear Friends, Fans, Sponsors and Supporters of the Armada:
As you may have heard, the United States Soccer Federation announced Friday that the NASL will retain its second-division status on a provisional basis for 2017. This is great news for the future of the Armada and the League in general.
Closer to home, I wanted to share with you some additional news concerning the future of the Jacksonville Armada. I currently am in talks with the NASL as they are a prospective buyer of the team here in Jacksonville. While I can't publicly announce the details as we are currently in negotiations, I can tell you that they are committed to keeping soccer in Jacksonville.
From the start of this great adventure, it has been my goal to see professional soccer thrive in Jacksonville. We have had many exciting times enjoying Armada matches and I am working hard during this transitional period to ensure that as I look to move on from being the CEO and owner of Armada, that I place the team and all that the Armada stands for in good hands.
As more details get ironed out and I can share additional information, I will. Until then, please know that I remain a committed soccer fan, a cheerleader for our great City of Jacksonville and forever thankful for the support and enthusiasm that the many friends, fans, sponsors and supporters of the Armada have shown over the years.
