MISL Approves New Majority Owner For San Diego Sockers
Published October 8, 2004
Raj Kalra has assumed majority ownership of the MISL San Diego Sockers from former investor/operator David Altomare after receiving unanimous approval from the MISL Management Committee. Altomare will continue to hold a minority share. The team named Jim Hartley as President, while Exec VP Ralf Wilhelms will remain in his role. Kalra earlier this year purchased the NLL Vancouver Ravens (MISL). In San Diego, Nick Canepa writes the Sockers “have had more going-out-of business sales than Persian rug dealers.” But Kalra said, “This franchise has been lacking a focus on ways to make money. I’m 100[%] certain we’re going to make money” (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 10/8).
