No XSV in 2015

XSV 4091029233 pppFrom XSV Captain Rich Telford: “XSV has always been extremely lucky to have the longtime supporters, fans, staff and family we have and we could never express how much we appreciate them. They have stuck with us through thick and thin from the very beginning, we couldn’t have asked for better loyalty.

Two things that have always been consistent with XSV are heart and drive along with the desire to win and be the best team in the world. It’s no secret that the last two seasons have been very challenging and quite a struggle for us as a team. At the end of the 2014 season, we were notified that our support would no longer continue. We have been working through the situation that has been presented to us and sorting out various options.

We have come to the conclusion that without the support we have had in the past, we cannot compete at our level. So, we have come to the very difficult decision that XSV will not be competing in the 2015 season. We will continue to look for new opportunities to get us back on the field as soon as possible. We will also continue to regroup as a team and look to the future and what it holds for XSV. Again, we appreciate each and every one of you that have continued to supported us.

Rich Telford and the entire XSV family”
