In an open letter, via Facebook, to fans, Boston Blazers President and General Manager Doug Reffue addressed a suspension of operations for the Boston Blazers this upcoming season. In his letter, Reffue expresses an interest in relocating the team to a more suitable arena. He doesn’t state that the franchise is down, however, he is optimistic about a run for the 2013 title.

To the Blazers Community –

The Boston Blazers have temporarily suspended operations for the 2012 National Lacrosse League (NLL) season as we begin the initial steps to relocate the team to a new home facility for the 2013 season. We have initiated a six-month strategic plan under my direction to evaluate prospective home arena venues, both locally and nationally, where the Blazers can play the 2013 campaign and beyond.

The Blazers’ business operations will be maintained in an “offseason” capacity throughout the 2012 season. The club will continue to host its youth related community programs and philanthropic activities.

All season tickets purchased for the 2012 season will be refunded in full. If you have questions regarding season tickets, please call our front office at 1-888-BLAZERS.

This temporary suspension represents the first phase of a relocation process as the Blazers evaluate potential home venues for the 2013 NLL season and beyond. We are interested in partnering with an arena where we can build on the momentum created over the past three seasons and forge a long-term win-win relationship between the team, the local corporate community and a facility operator.

In the last three years, the Boston Blazers have enjoyed a strong, enthusiastic and ever growing base of fans in Boston. Thank you for this support – it’s been a privilege to represent the city of Boston in the NLL and be part of this community. We will keep you informed as the Blazers march toward the 2013 season. We look forward to sharing information about the Blazers’ next chapter in the weeks and months to come on our website (www.blazerslacrosse.com) and Facebook page – facebook.com/bostonblazers.

Again, thank you for the continued support. It’s been an honor playing for you.

Doug Reffue, Boston Blazers President and General Manager
