Within the last few weeks, it came to our attention that there were issues between Winterfox and its players, which threatened the ability for either of them to further participate in the League. After engaging both sides in conversations, the team and players explored potential solutions with the guidance of the League as to its rules and regulations.
Winterfox and the players have now found a solution and resolved all of their outstanding issue as well as agreed to a transfer of the League license to the majority of the players.
Following the rules and guidelines for League License transfers, we have now received appropriate confirmations from both Winterfox as well as the majority of the players necessary to complete the transfer of the License.
Winterfox's License has been removed on their own request and transferred to the majority of the players with the restriction to use a majority lineup. The players will continue to play in the League as "Animal Squad" and will be allowed to finish out the season from Australia. However, if the team secures a slot for next season, they will need to return to North America in order to be eligible to further play in the League.
