Despite Bobcats disbanding, owner hints that Fall River may see Arena Football again

We told you yesterday that the New England Bobcats disbanded, ending their season. Don’t count out the chance, however, of Fall River seeing Arena Football again in the future.

The Bobcats, a professional indoor football team that called Fall River home, had their season abruptly end this week. While yesterday the reasons were not totally clear, Cynthia Hudson, who was the team’s owner, president & general manager, has brought a clearer picture when we came in contact with her today.

“In our original agreement with the arena we had come to a price. Since their first payment, they have charged another $3,300 and wanted an additional $6,000. With low attendance numbers, I couldn’t keep paying $10,000 a game after cost.”

While that statement may make things seem bleak, Hudson enjoyed the city and is hoping to return to Fall River with Arena Football once again.

“I was disheartened to make the decision and trust me the decision didn’t come easy. I really like Fall River and as we try to restructure, we are hoping to go back to Fall River with a better plan that makes sense for everyone involved.”

Until that time, Fall River still has the semi-pro Troy City Titans who will be calling Durfee home for their inaugural season in the coming months.

We attempted to get a response from Driscoll Arena, but we were unsuccessful.
