New York Saints Suspend Operations

The New York Saints lacrosse team has suspended operations, effective immediately. The Saints will not play in the upcoming 2003-2004 NLL season, the league announced earlier today.

'The Saints and the NLL have a proud tradition on Long Island, and believe that tradition will continue in the future,' said Commissioner Jim Jennings. 'The Saints ownership group has been negotiating with prospective purchasers for several months. The team's owners and the league were hopeful to complete the sale in time for the upcoming season. Unfortunately, a deal could not be reached in time. The search will continue, and we hope to have the team back in the league for the 2004-2005 season. We ask the loyal and long-time Saints fans to please be patient, as we work to ensure a successful, long term future for the team.' The team moved to Long Island in 1989, and played its home games at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.

Saints players will be eligible to play for other teams next season. The league will announce details relating to dispersal of the Saints roster at a later date.
