The Zuckers finally decided to share the financial burden with somebody else.  Let the speculation now begin on when & where the new majority owner decides to move the team.  :popcorn:

 IMO no matter the league, the city's financial concessions associated with the existing Stingrays' arena lease are unlikely to continue for future leases/extensions.  So even on an SPHL budget, it's gonna take a lot of effort by the new team owner to continue the past successes of the Rays.

Halloran said he has no plans to move the team or replace president Rob Concannon or coach Ryan Warsofsky.

“I think I’m smart enough to know when I see a successful organization, and this is one of the most successful organizations, not only in hockey, but in minor league sports around the country,” Halloran said. “Their record speaks for itself, so there are no plans to make any changes. I picked this opportunity partially because of the location.”

Halloran said he’s looking to purchase a house in the area.

In 2015, Jonathan Zucker said the Stingrays were losing between $400,000 and $700,000 each year since the team was established in 1993. He added that even when the Stingrays drew 9,000 fans per game, the team did not break even. :blink:
