Crude to leave Oklahoma

(Enid-AP) -- The next game for the Oklahoma Crude will also be the team's last home game in Oklahoma.

Owner Jamie LaMunyon announced this week that the arena football team will move from Oklahoma following this season.

LaMunyon is currently considering several cities, including San Antonio and Atlanta.

LaMunyon says the business community in Enid was highly supportive of the team, but the fan base was too small.

Enid, a town of about 47-thousand people is located about 100 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.

It also has a United States Basketball League team, the Oklahoma Storm.

LaMunyon says attendance might have been better if the Crude had won more games.

Oklahoma is 0-10 this season in the National Indoor Football League.

The Crude's next home game June 12 against Waco, Texas, will be the team's last in Oklahoma. Oklahoma finishes its season with two road games.
