MY EYES HAVE SEEN THE LEAVING OF THE GLORY FROM ATLANTA
Published March 20, 1998
After two seasons of "battling poor attendance and losing money," the ABL Glory will not return to Atlanta next season, according to Celeste Whittaker of the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. The team will move to Nashville, Tampa or St. Louis, with a decision by April 1. ABL CEO Gary Cavalli: "The bottom line was just so bad. We have lost a tremendous amount of money down there." The team averaged 2,780 its first season at Morehouse Arena and 3,898 in its second year, but "much of its wasn't paid." The league "will not retain anybody from the team's front office." Whittaker: "The Glory suffered from a lack of overall marketing. Despite the big local names, the players didn't make many local appearances" (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 3/20).
