More talk of Napanee expansion.
Article in the Napanee Guide yesterday stating the FHL is very interested in putting a team there DESPITE the arena seats 1,000, max. Not the 1,500 Comish Don wants.
Richards said the league's business model is based on trying to sell roughly 1,000 tickets per game for about $10 each. According to box scores on the league's website, most teams aren't doing that yet. A game last Saturday night in Brockville drew 411 fans and a Sunday game in Alexandria Bay drew 343. The Danbury team, however, consistently draws over 1,000 fans.
The maximum weekly salary cap for an entire team is $5,350 per week.
The NPHL proposed salary cap is $4,000.
