Special Statement from Lane Smith Regarding April Fool's Joke
Like many of our fans I awoke this morning to news that the Tacoma Stars will be moving to the Tacoma Dome. I was quickly informed by our fan faithful that is was probably an April Fool's joke. Yes, our creative team in a good natured spirt, made the post and even fooled me. As much as myself and many fans would like to play at the Tacoma dome it is just not plausible right now and not just for economic reasons. Tacoma dome lacks infrastructure and sports related amenities necessary to have professional sports events. Yes, with upgrades from the City it would be very cool to play at the Tacoma Dome once again. I know this is a very sensitive subject for our faithful fans, so please accept my apologies for fans that found it offensive. I know our staff would never intend to hurt our brand and hope everyone will now accept the Aprils Fool's joke and continue to support the Tacoma Stars. We just finished a season playing all our games away due to Washington Covid 19 restrictions and with great expense wanted to keep our team and brand alive. Thanks for many of you continuing to follow the team! Please accept this as the joke it was intended to be, and I look forward to a season full of fans next season at the accesso ShoWare Center.
