Maui owner says team will return in 2011

Owner Michael Cummings was quoted in an article in the The Maui News as saying that the Strong Warriors of Maui will be back in the GBL next year. Although the team lost money this past season, he has brought in some business partners to supply additional capital. The Na Koa Ikaika Maui franchise only drew between 600 and 700 fans last season, but they pulled in 2,145 fans for the final game of the GBL Championship Series, a 7-1 loss to the Chico Outlaws.

Incidentally, Chico's sweep of Maui in the GBL Championship Series was their second league title in the last four  years.
