Arena league extends season deadline

The Hawaiian Islanders were given an additional two weeks to reach their goal of $525,000 when the arenafootball2 league yesterday extended the deadline for owners to commit to the upcoming season.

The original deadline was extended from Sept. 30 to Oct. 15 by the league's board of directors, which requested more time to finalize expansion team candidates.

Last month, the Islanders' ownership group set the goal of $525,000 in new revenues in order to keep the team in Honolulu for a fourth season. According to the team's general manager, Chris Dey, the club has reached 60 percent of its revenue goal and has 30 new corporate partners.
