A deal to sell the Wichita Wild indoor football team to a local group is apparently dead. The Wild owners will now look at groups outside Wichita to purchase the team.

"At this time the Wichita Wild is unable to finalize an agreement to sell the Wild and continue to play the games at Hartman Arena. As the team first reported we waited to negotiate with other possible buyers to work with the local buyers group first. The Wichita Wild now will entertain other opportunities to continue the process to sell the team." - Owner Wink Hartman

"It's very disappointing to hear this news. Our window for fielding a successful team for next season is closing more and more each day. I hope a new owner is found soon, and I hope they want me to be their coach." - Coach Paco Martinez
