INVESTOR IS CONFIDENT CFL WILL BE IN MIAMI IN '96
Published April 26, 1995
Miami developer Bruce Frey says he is "very confident" that his group will either secure a CFL expansion team or acquire the CFL's Posse and move it to Miami for the '96 season. Frey previously had said he would not buy the Posse, but changed his mind after the team's planned move to Jackson, MS, fell through. The South FL team would be named the Miami Manatees, and a portion of every ticket would go to fund to help save the endangered sea mammal. CFL Commissioner Larry Smith will meet with Orange Bowl and city officials on May 2. Frey expects the league to approve his '96 plans within the next 60 days (MIAMI HERALD, 4/25). In other CFL news, Baltimore CFLs owner Jim Speros noted that 40% of last year's season-ticket holders have not renewed, but he hopes yesterday's schedule announcement will boost sales (Roch Eric Kubatko, Baltimore SUN, 4/26).
