ARENA FOOTBALL KNOWS THE WAY TO SAN JOSE
Published December 6, 1994
Arena Football League Commissioner Jim Drucker will announce tomorrow that San Jose will be one of five cities to field new franchises in '95 as the league expands to 16 teams in four divisions. The San Jose franchise will play its games at San Jose Arena beginning in May, 1995. Drucker would not identify the ownership group, "but he did say it paid $750,000 for the franchise -- something of a bargain considering a franchise scheduled to begin play in the 1997 season was sold" for $1.25M. Des Moines, Hartford, Memphis and St. Louis will join San Jose in the '95 expansion (Robert Kuwada, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 12/5).
