Arena Football League Takes Over Operation of Vince Neil’s Las Vegas Outlaws
Motley Crue's Vince Neil brought football to Las Vegas, but things apparently haven't gone as planned. According to FOX 5 Vegas, the Arena Football League has announced that it has taken over operations of the team.
Neil is part of the ownership group that launched the team in Las Vegas earlier this year. However, according to a press release, this decision by the AFL was made as part of a league plan to "solidify its financial condition and create a platform for growth."
"AFL ownership requires significant financial commitment and operational expertise," stated AFL commissioner Scott C. Butera. "We're excited about moving forward with members who share the same vision."
The Las Vegas Outlaws, who have experienced poor attendance at their home games, weren't the only team affected by AFL league moves, as the AFL also took over operations for the New Orleans Voodoo. Watch a Las Vegas news report above.
The Las Vegas Outlaws have four games left in their inaugural season, and they will play the LA KISS in Los Angeles this Saturday (July 18). The KISS, of course, are owned by fellow rockers Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of KISS.
