The Shreveport/Bossier area has lost another sports franchise. The Shreveport-Bossier Mavericks are packing up and leaving town. Here's the press release from the franchise:


(Shreveport, LA) -We would like to thank the Shreveport-Bossier community and surrounding areas for the support over the last two years. We have won 2 championships in this community and are very proud of our accomplishments. The Mavericks will be relocating from the Shreveport-Bossier area to a new city for the 2015-2016 season.

State Fair of Louisiana President/General Manager, Chris Giordano, states "I am sadden to see such a great organization go, but I believe this is one of the most successful sports teams this city has had! They believed in an old building like the Hirsch and made it their home for 2 seasons!"

General Manager of the Shreveport-Bossier Mavericks, Debra Green, states, "Shreveport has been home to us for 2 seasons! We are appreciative for the support of the many sponsors, City of Shreveport and Bossier, Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau, Sports Commission, local staff, and fans who contributed to our success. Great things happened in this city that we will never forget!"

Again, thank you Shreveport-Bossier! For more information and updates on our road to a new city stay posted on our website, SBMAVS.COM.
