CISL'S MEXICO CITY FRANCHISE SELECTS TOROS AS TEAM NAME
Businessman Achar Levy and CISL Commissioner Ron Weinstein
officially announced the formation of the Mexico Toros yesterday,
the second '95 expansion franchise awarded by the CISL. The
Toros will play their home games at Palacio de los Deportes.
With a capacity of 16,000, the arena has hosted NBA exhibition
games the last two years. Mexico and the Seattle Seadogs are the
two expansion teams for the '95 season. Monterrey La Raza, the
league's other Mexican franchise, joined the league in its
inaugural '93 season. Weinstein: "Placing a team in one of the
world's largest markets is a huge step forward" (CISL).
