CISL'S MEXICO CITY FRANCHISE SELECTS TOROS AS TEAM NAME
Published January 26, 1995
Businessman Achar Levy and CISL Commissioner Ron Weinstein officially announced the formation of the Mexico Toros yesterday, the second '95 expansion franchise awarded by the CISL. The Toros will play their home games at Palacio de los Deportes. With a capacity of 16,000, the arena has hosted NBA exhibition games the last two years. Mexico and the Seattle Seadogs are the two expansion teams for the '95 season. Monterrey La Raza, the league's other Mexican franchise, joined the league in its inaugural '93 season. Weinstein: "Placing a team in one of the world's largest markets is a huge step forward" (CISL).
