Siegel says that under his ownership, he won’t settle for anything less than a championship-worthy team.
"This fits perfect, it feels good, and it’s something we can definitely help build on," Siegel says.
Under Siegel’s ownership, the Predator’s will move from UCF’s CFE Arena to the Amway Center for their 2015 season.
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer says it’ll be a great move for the team.
"Well I think if the Predators are going to be successful, it’s important for them to be in the Amway Center, be in the Center of attention," Dyer says.
Siegel also says that he plans on making the team a charitable one, donating unsold seats to underprivileged children, students with good grades, and perfect attendance. Siegel also plans on having family-only and single’s-only sections for the Predator games.
