LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
The Las Vegas Wranglers, barring disaster, will remain in Las Vegas for the foreseeable future.
Team president Billy Johnson told FOX5 on Sunday that the Wranglers will decide from three different arena options for the 2014-15 season, and the announcement will likely be made at the team's next home game, Jan. 31.
In mid-December the Wranglers were notified by the owners of the Orleans Arena, Boyd Gaming, that its lease would not be extended past the 2013-14 season.
Johnson has been working feverishly to keep the team in Las Vegas since. He would not reveal any of the three possible sites the team could move to, nor the venues eliminated.
Johnson jokingly revealed the only place the Wranglers would not be playing at next season was the Orleans Arena.
The ECHL has imposed a deadline for the team to secure a new home by Jan. 22. Johnson said that deadline will be extended by one or two weeks to finalize the new deal with a local arena.
Each of the three arenas present some degree of risk, and the team has not ruled out playing in more than one venue next season.
