Urgent Request for Action!

Southern Professional Hockey League logo

Local sports legend Art Clarkson is in the process of trying to bring professional hockey back to Birmingham!

Art is considering a franchise in the Southern Professional Hockey League, which was founded in 2004 and currently has ten teams. A natural rival would be the Huntsville Havoc, an SPFL member since the league formed.
 
If you are a sports fan, or a hockey fan, or a Birmingham fan, or a "just something fun to do" fan, PLEASE take a minute to send an e-mail to William Bell, the mayor of Birmingham! His address is william.bell@birminghamal.gov.

Just send him a quick e-mail to say how much you'd like to see hockey return to the Magic City. And have all your friends e-mail him, too!

If you'd rather call the mayor's office, the number is (205) 254-2283.

Let's all help Art bring professional hockey back to Birmingham!
