The Professional Arena Soccer League (PASL) today announced it has granted approval to the Tulsa Revolution to join the league for the 2013-14 season. The ownership group is led by Adam Mellor, who founded the Tulsa Revolution, and Shannon Clark.
The Revolution played one season in the American Indoor Soccer League, but when the league ceased operations following the 2007-08 season, Mellor’s team was forced to go dark. “We have wanted to bring the team back for some time, but we have a bigger vision and bigger goals now,” said Mellor. “We believe the PASL is the right league to accomplish those goals, and we look forward to bringing professional arena soccer back to Tulsa next year.”
The Revolution have already agreed to terms with the 8,900 seat Tulsa Convention Center.
“We are excited to welcome Adam, Shannon and the Revolution into the PASL as the first expansion team for the 2013/14 season,” said PASL Commissioner Kevin Milliken. “Tulsa sports fans are in for a treat.”
