FHL Expansion 2018-2019 & beyond??

Recommended Posts

With the League getting closer to 10 years of existence... these next 2 years are going to be crucial in the growth of the league.  A few markets are coming in this year and hearing a few for next season with the rumored reconstruction of how the league operates, could help finally get this league over that hump. Also with Scott Brand and a few others helping to find good markets is only a plus as well. The league model is one that will def work if done right, and WS showed that last season. I expect growth in the other markets this coming year as well. Now they have a game plan to go by with WS. What rumored markets have you heard of joining?

(Rumored)

Mentor, Ohio
Battle Creek, MI
???, PA
???, NC
Salisbury, MD
Traverse City, MI
Anderson, SC
Charleston, WV
Danbury, CT
Elmira, NY

Castle Rock, ME?
Mayberry, NC?

Don't tell the fine folk of Wamego.  It's pretty much all they've got going for them.

Anchorage needs a new team...

Wouldn't that make it the "Far-away Hockey League"?  :hmm:

This Bus League Hockey bunch - or maybe it's just one guy with an e-tablet living in Barry Soskin's condo dumpster - has got serious issues with caffeine addiction.  :wacko:

ETA: And he might just be supplying @Greg81102 with his nightly Monster M3 fix.

Is the PA team York?

The latest rumor I've heard is they are trying for the Ice Mine in Leisenring...but the ownership group that got the ball rolling there is a little short on cash and is looking for investors or a major sponsor. And by a little I mean $100k.

Been there many times.  Nice?  Sure.  Oz?  Not even close.

If not Smallville, how about Metropolis, IL?

Next time me 'n' Mrs. JMC drive through the vicinity, I'll see if she'll agree to a detour so I can duct tape a hockey stick to Superman's leg.

I'm Superman, too. But I fight for truth, justice and a disgustingly small paycheck

Superman, now he was a semi-professional.  Had to keep his job at The Daily Planet just to make ends meet.  :dontgetit:

Maybe announce what Bus League Hockey says is 99.9% finally?

https://busleaguehockey.com/2018/06/14/where-the-heck-is-the-fhl-mentor-announcement/

The author mentions the smoke, but not the mirrors that the FHL carries with them to every new city.  So if a hockey team DOES appear in Mentor, OH, the likelihood of it disappearing not long after is pretty high.  Flush.gif

Should be some expansion news coming soon from what i hear.

I have heard the same thing, with rumor being that the 2nd team is in New York, though no specifics on what city in NY that might be, but I'd guess Elmira based on their past negotiations with the FHL.
