The Spokane Shock announced this week they have reached an agreement for a three-year lease with the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena.
“I am absolutely delighted to announce that the Spokane Shock have entered into a three-year lease agreement with the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena,” said Nader Naini, the Chairman of Arena Football Partners. “Since acquiring the team in January, we have held steadfast to our commitment to keep this civic asset and its rich tradition in Spokane. This agreement with the Spokane Public Facilities District is consistent with our unwavering responsibility to our loyal fans and our supportive business partners to continue providing a fan friendly, first class sports entertainment experience.”
The 2015 season will mark the Shock's 10th season as a franchise. They kicked off their inaugural season in 2006 as a member of the af2 (arenafootball2) and after ArenaCup wins in 2006 and 2009, the team made the jump to the Arena Football League in 2010 where they won their first ArenaBowl Championship in their first season.
