Co-owner Craig Spencer adds that the league’s two-year hiatus, which started in 2008, allowed for restructuring that will provide a better product for fans. “We are thrilled to reward our fans with the return of a stronger, fiscally stable Philadelphia Soul franchise. While we shared the frustration of every fan when the league shut down, we also believed it was essential for the sport’s long-term success. Today’s announcement is further testament to that belief and that the league is back and stronger than ever,” Spencer explains.
