Published March 24, 1995
The Phoenix Firebrands are in negotiations to relocate to Austin, TX, for the '97 season, according to today's ARIZONA REPUBLIC. The Firebrands and Austin city officials have worked out a plan which "provides for an unusual public-private venture to build" an $18M, 12,000 seat stadium on city parkland. A study concluded the team could draw up to 450,000 fans and bring about $9M to the city's economy (Bob Eger, ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 3/24).
