Evansville IceMen: Deadline for Lease Agreement Approaches

Local News
Evansville Icemen Negotiations

On Wednesday, the deadline arrives for the Evansville IceMen and the City of Evansville to come to an agreement.

Last month, Evansville IceMen owner Ron Geary told Eyewitness News the lease agreement deadline was extended by the commissioner of the ECHL to January 6.

Geary says he was told this second extension was the final deadline and that there will be no other extensions.

Geary has publicly stated on Eyewitness News he will be forced to pull the team out of Evansville if a lease for the IceMen to play at Ford Center is not reached.

We will continue to follow this story as it develops.
