• New sports franchise in Reading?

    Missouri Sports Holdings – the ownership group that’s bringing indoor soccer to Reading with the debut of the Pennsylvania Roar next month at the soon-to-be-renamed Sovereign Center – will hold a press conference in downtown Reading at 3 pm this afternoon for a “major sports announcement regarding another sports franchise” coming to Reading’s arena. The question is who and what … here’s a somewhat educated guess, based on a lot of inferences – indoor football! Missouri Sports Holdings already owns the St. Louis franchise in the brand new X-League Indoor Football League, which will debut in the spring with teams in St. Louis, Dalton, GA, and Lakeland, FL. However, a story on the league’s website says “the league currently has teams in Florida, Georgia, Missouri and Pennsylvania.”

    Is indoor football returning to Reading? We’ll find out this afternoon ….
