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).
