PRESS RELEASE – Our entire organization is disappointed in the Village Board’s decision yesterday, especially after 13 years of running our small business and risking over $30 million privately in a difficult economy. We’re mostly disappointed for the people and local businesses of Schaumburg, as last week the Flyers reached an agreement with a qualified, successful local business owner who agreed to immediately purchase the team this week, pay the Village and local creditors, and have a 2011 season that was highly anticipated by many fans. It’s a great disservice to the community that the Village Board blocked our sale, that over 200 locals will not have the jobs they rely on annually at the stadium, and the community will not have its home team and the affordable summertime entertainment that it provides.
We wish the Schaumburg community all the best. We will surely miss all our great fans and business partners that have been loyal for so many years. Please check this site periodically for an update on where you can see the Flyers play in 2011, as well as policies for 2011 purchases.
