Wichita Wild are done, new team to take the field next season

WICHITA, Kansas – At a press conference Thursday, KSN learned the Wichita Wild are done, but a new team will take the field next season.

It’s a new franchise with the same coaches and players.

An investment group led by general managing partner Marv Fisher had tried to buy the Wichita Wild, but when negotiations broke down, the newly merged champions and Lone Star League didn’t want to be without a team in Wichita, and so, they granted Fisher a brand new franchise.

“That did not work. I did not buy it. That ship has sailed if you will. This is a brand new franchise. In the very near future, we will announce the name the team contest and get that out there because we got to work our way through those kind of things.”

Current Wild coach Paco Martinez will remain with the team.

Fisher says he is not sure where they’re going to play yet and what the team will be called.

He expects to have contest for fans to name the new team.
