SPURS LOOK AT IHL TEAM AS ICING ON THE ALAMODOME CAKE
Published February 15, 1995
An official for the Spurs "confirmed that the organization is exploring the idea of securing" an IHL franchise to play at the Alamodome, according to this morning's SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS- NEWS. Spurs VP of Business Operations Russ Bookbinder said the team has looked "at all different opportunities." Bookbinder: "We looked at the CFL. We looked at IHL hockey. But there really is nothing imminent." IHL VP/Communications Tim Bryant said a San Antonio group has expressed an interest in joining the league, but he didn't know if the city would be added to the league's expansion list for '95-96. San Francisco and Orlando have already been announced as new franchises for '95-96 (Briggs & Griffin, SAN ANTONIO NEWS-EXPRESS, 2/15).
