Shock Owner Announces Plan To Relocate Team

Posted: Updated:
TULSA -

Tulsa Shock majority owner Bill Cameron announced a plan to relocate the franchise to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The plans have been submitted to the WNBA Board of Governors for approval.

“I am proud of the team and the organization and know they will stay focused on making this a winning season," Cameron said.  “I am thankful for the support we have received from the city of Tulsa, Mayors Taylor and Bartlett, local fans and sponsors over the past six years. I appreciate the Tulsa investors who stepped up at a critical time to help me bring the Shock to Tulsa from Detroit in 2010.”

“This is a very difficult decision, and I know it is particularly difficult for the Tulsa investors. From a business perspective, it was necessary to evaluate options to place the team and the organization in the best position to achieve financial success. After a thorough review, I believe the Dallas-Fort Worth area holds the greatest potential to achieve our long-term business objectives.”
