STALLIONS OWNER HAS "POSITIVE" MEETING WITH BALTIMORE MAYOR
Published November 28, 1995
While the state of MD has not made any financial promises to the CFL Stallions, Owner Jim Speros received a "warmer" reception yesterday from Baltimore Mayor Kurt Schmoke, according to the Baltimore SUN. Speros said Schmoke promised to see if the Maryland Stadium Authority would pick up some of the team's annual $400,000 in operating costs, adding Schmoke wants to make sure the MSA treats the Stallions the same way as the Browns. The Stallions will start a season-ticket campaign Friday aimed at gaining 20,000 season-ticket holders. Their season-ticket base was 17,800 last season. While Speros said, "If we sell 20,000 tickets, I'm not going anyplace," he still plans to "explore" moving the team. He is scheduled to meet with an investment group in Richmond, tour Foreman Field in Norfolk, and meet with University of Maryland officials about playing at Byrd Stadium (Baltimore SUN, 11/28).
