Steelhawks to Take Hiatus for 2019 Season
Allentown, PA: At the conclusion of the 2018 National Arena League season the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks announced that our ownership was putting the team up for sale after eight seasons. The announcement was made with the intentions of being able to find a local group that could continue the legacy of providing high quality entertainment to the Lehigh Valley with the same community driven mindset for years to come.
After negotiations with several interested parties, and the 2019 NAL season rapidly approaching, we unfortunately were unable to successfully close a deal in time to ensure a successful start for the next group and provide the Lehigh Valley fans the level of organization both on and off the field that they have come to enjoy these past years. With that being said, the team will be taking a hiatus for the 2019 season while we continue the search to find the right local ownership group for 2020 and beyond.
We are extremely proud of all the team has accomplished over the years including multiple charitable endeavors, creation of the successful Steelhawks Junior Football League, developing young men and giving them the opportunity to further their playing careers, and most importantly serving our community and the best fans and partners in Arena Football each Spring/Summer.
We will continue to work tirelessly to find a local partner who has the aspirations of committing to the Lehigh Valley, and bringing high quality entertainment to the area. Our group is determined to help ensure a seamless transition for any interested group. Serious inquiries should be directed to Mike Clark at email@example.com.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts Steelhawks supporters!
