Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) January 22, 2013
Tulsa area media, sports fans and business owners are showing early enthusiasm for the inaugural of the new Tulsa Revolution in Downtown Tulsa.
A Press Conference open to the public and all media is scheduled for Thursday, January 24 @ 12pm at the Tulsa Convention Center to announce Tulsa’s newest Professional sports franchise.
The Press Conference will be held at the Tulsa Convention Center Arena Floor located at 100 Civic Center Tulsa, OK 74103. At this time the media and local enthusiasts will receive all the details about this exciting new venture.
"We think, given the grassroots support of local fans and enthusiast of all ages along with the 'win-win's' we are bringing to downtown Tulsa, we are creating a huge benefit for the Tulsa economy," said Mellor.
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 this year."
The Tulsa Roughnecks had a great run in Tulsa the late 70's to early 80's several of those early players became somewhat famous i.e.: Charlie Mitchell, owner of Charlie Mitchell's restaurants. Follow the Tulsa Revolution and their news here and on Twitter @TulsaProSoccer.

"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."
The Tulsa Revolution was officially welcomed into the PASL for membership on July 10, 2012.
