The Austin Aztex have accepted an offer from a UK consortium to sell the franchise, which will be moved to Orlando, Fla., in time for the 2011 season.
"We have been actively seeking to broaden the investment base for the Aztex for the past 12 months. It has proven extremely difficult given the economic climate,” Aztex President Phil Rawlins said on the team's Web site. “Our first and overriding preference was always to keep the Aztex in Austin. But after we exhausted all our options this has not proven possible.”
Coach Adrian Heath will be making the move to Florida. The team has not announced which players will be retained. Orlando will play in the USL Pro League.
