AWBL Chief Executive Officer Michael Cummings commented on the new ownership group by saying, "We are very excited about our new partnership with the Nogales ownership group, and adding another financially stable team to the AWBL. The partnership with the new ownership group shows the strength and stability of AWBL, and gives players from the United States and South America an opportunity that they may not otherwise have.”
