It will be intersting to see what the crowds will be.  UNF is certainly closer for the kids in its youth academy.

Interesting. Apparently a group associated with the USL (the other D2 league) was looking here as well.

Will continue beating this drum...

From the article, RP is paying $5 million in naming rights for the LAKELAND CENTER, and we continue to refuse to monetize ours.

It is really nonsensical that the city won't do it.

Same with the baseball grounds.

This question has been answered. I think it was the right move for financial stability with costs being cut from renting the Baseball Grounds and only a small down tick in attendance.

The club has since moved its home games to the University of North Florida’s Hodges Stadium, drawing an average of 3,044 fans in its eight home games in 2017. That’s a decrease of about 13 percent from last year.

Perhaps we probably could (at least help) finance a medium sized soccer stadium if we sold the naming rights to the arena...

I think a decrease of only 13% considering the less central location and increasing age of the franchise isn't bad.

It will be interesting to see if there were any stipulations for Robert Palmer in keeping the team as NASL moving forward rather than being able to move to the USL.

The attendance had already fallen from almost 8k the year before that. The real cause was a decrease in marketing.

I don't see how the Armada survive without a new venue. But I don't anybody lining up to pay for it, regardless of naming rights.
