Stingrays hope to return

Team official wants public to buy shares

The Florida Stingrays are hoping to make a comeback in 2011.

Cape Coral resident Jay Lawrence, the vice president of operations for the team during its lone season in 2008, has spearheaded an effort to get the indoor football team back on the field in 2011 through Hands Up Charity.

The team played at the Lee Civic Center during its 0-14 campaign in the American Indoor Football Association and is looking to rejoin the AIFA.

Lawrence has split the team into 20,000 shares of stock, 10,200 of which Hands Up Charity will own.

He is hoping to sell the other 9,800 shares to individuals in Southwest Florida.

The price of each share is $100 and Lawrence is asking that each person who buys a share also buys a season ticket. Lawrence would like to move the team to Germain Arena.

The price of the season tickets range from $10-20 per game and there would likely be eight home games.

The $100 fee would go to the charity, which helps provide disabled people with supplies.

"We're not looking to make anybody rich here," Lawrence said. "This can raise money for charity and give Southwest Florida a team again."

Lawrence said that if he is not able to sell all 9,800 shares, any investor would get 75 percent of his or her money back with a $25 donation going to the charity, of which Lawrence is the CEO.

Germain Arena general manager Craig Brush said he is not against bringing an indoor football team into Germain Arena in the future if it's the right fit.

"If the situation is right we look at bringing any type of entertainment into the building," Brush said. "We'd have to make sure there would be adequate attendance and it would be a good deal for all parties involved."
