Ownership Shift in Tampa 

Posted by James at 10:05 AM ET

The Tampa Bay Storm announces that Peter “Woody” Kern has sold the AFL Tampa Bay Storm after 13 years of ownership and three ArenaBowl titles. Tampa based Dr. Bob Nucci has purchased a majority interest in the team which includes the acquisition of a newly renewed marketing agreement with Palace Sports & Entertainment. This agreement keeps the team playing its games at the St. Pete Times Forum.

Tampa Bay Storm Dancers were on hand at the public press conference held Thursday, December 13th. In addition to sharing in the excitement, the dancers were able to capitalize on a few coveted photo opportunities with players, coaches, owners and even the Commissioner of the Arena Football League, Mr. David Baker.
