The Frontier League announced that it has reached an agreement with the Kalamazoo Kings for the Kings to cease operations for the 2011 season. The Kings are exploring their options for the 2012 season.

Kalamazoo Kings Owner, Bill Wright, says, "I appreciate the League allowing us to cease operations for the 2011 season. We have the opportunity to play in 2012, and we will explore all of our options. I also want to thank the City of Kalamazoo for working with us on this matter."
