Fort Wayne making ‘major sports announcement’


CALL A “MAJOR SPORTS ANNOUNCEMENT” IN THE MAYOR’S OFFICE. WE HAVE CONFIRMED THIS DOES NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE PROFESSIONAL TEAMS IN THE CITY: THE MAD ANTS, TINCAPS, OR KOMETS. WE ALSO KNOW THAT LOCAL BUSINESS LEADERS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE TAKING PART IN THE PRESS CONFERENCE. THE LAST TIME THERE WAS ANY KIND OF MAJOR SPORTS NEWS IN TOWN WAS LAST YEAR WHEN IT BROKE THAT AN INDOOR FOOTBALL TEAM AFFILIATED WITH THE NATIONAL GRIDIRON LEAGUE WOULD CALL FORT WAYNE HOME. THE FORT WAYNE BLUE BOMBERS WOULD’VE PLAYED AT THE COLISEUM THIS YEAR, BUT THE START DATE FOR THE LEAGUE WAS PUSHED BACK TO 20-20. NOW, THE BLUE BOMBERS ARE STILL LISTED ON THE LEAGUE’S SITE BUT NO GAMES ARE CURRENTLY SCHEDULED FOR ANY OF THE TEAMS. BEFORE THAT, THE JOURNAL GAZETTE REPORTED THAT FORT WAYNE WAS BEING LOOKED AT BY THE UNITED SOCCER LEAGUE BACK IN 20-17 AS A POTENTIAL LOCATION FOR A NEW SOCCER TEAM. AS I SAID, TODAY’S PRESS CONFERENCE IS AT 1 O’CLOCK, I’LL BE THERE AND I’LL BE FOLLOWING WITH THE STORY ON SOCIAL MEDIA. WE’LL ALSO STREAM THE ANNOUNCEMENT LIVE ON WANE DOT COM. AT CITIZENS SQUARE, BRITT SALAY, WANE 15 NEWS.
