Ed Hale, Chairman of the League stated “I am pleased as an owner and Chairman of the newly formed league that we have the framework for a “super” league that will foster expansion, a TV deal and national sponsors. It has been tough to get this far. We have had collegial talks with a group of well-meaning partners.

Commissioner Kevin Milliken commented “I am proud of how fast we were able to put this deal together, how much true passion everyone has for our sport, and how everyone has come together to make this great day in our sport happen.”
