Cotton Kings No Longer Operating In Lubbock

The Cotton Kings will no longer be operating in Lubbock, Texas. That's a direct quote from a letter sent to season ticket holders. The announcement follows failed negotiations between the hockey team and the City of Lubbock concerning the lease of the coliseum.

Cotton Kings season ticket holders can soon expect to be receiving a letter, dated June 4th, in their mail boxes. It states that in light of recent developments it has been decided that a fair agreement between the Cotton Kings and the city cannot be reached.

General Manager Todd Chisnell tells NewsChannel 11 the Cotton Kings are still trying to work something out with the city and that the letter is just to keep ticket holders informed.

"It's meant to let them know they will be getting a refund on July 1st if things don't work out with the city and that's the direction things are heading at this time," says Chisnell.

Last week, members of the Cotton Kings ownership visited San Angelo, exploring options of possibly moving the team somewhere else. Chisnell says so far they've only had one meeting in San Angelo but another is scheduled for the end of this week.

We're told the letter is being sent to those who have already put down money for the upcoming season.

So what's next for the Coliseum? Coming up tonight on NewsChannel 11 at 10, we'll explain what the city is planning to do with it and why the ice may be melting away.
