Default Mississauga announce new 5 year lease today

I just read a statement on Twitter by the owner of the team that he has come to a agreement with the city for a 5 year extension.
So, they are not going anywhere afterall. hm

Now if only they could come to a five year agreement with the fanbase! Average was 2801 last year.

It is what it is in the GTA. They can wear blue jerseys but if they are not the Leafs or the Raptors, nobody in TO and area cares.
The team must have gotten a sweet-heart deal with the City. Probably very cheap rent and a good share of the concessions.

The owner stated in an interview at the beginning of the playoffs that he had lost a lot of money over the years and was no longer willing to keep on losing large sums of money.
For sure, the City gave him a great deal or he would have sold the club. (Always a good bargaining ploy).

There was a slight attendance increase this year (~100) but otherwise it has been a downward trend. I'd have sold.

I find it amazing that the west side of Toronto (Miss & Brampton) can't support a team and get 5000 people out each game.

Maybe the trick is to put the arena in "downtown" type area. Instead of beside a highway interchange in the middle of a giant parking lot. So at least you have a bunch of people within walking distance and a transit hub nearby.
