SOCCER UPDATE: HEY, WHAT'S ALL THAT RUCKUS?
Published March 15, 1995
The Atlanta Ruckus, which almost "folded before playing a single game," will begin play this spring under an agreement in which the A-League, (formerly the APSL) will run the team's day- to-day operations. The league expects to "transfer" the club to local owners next season (Doug Cress, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 3/15)....The NPSL Chicago Power and Detroit Rockers play a regular season game Friday at New Haven Coliseum. The Connecticut Sports Development Group, which is staging the game and has applied for a franchise, hopes the game will be "another step along a path" to acquire a NPSL team (Jerry Trecker, HARTFORD COURANT, 3/15).
