Owner Changes for the Eau Claire Express?

The Eau Claire Express will have a new majority owner, pending league approval.

The organization announced that Bill Rowlett will purchase the majority interest of the team from current owner, Jeff Jones.

Two years ago, Rowlett was fired from his position as the team's general manager but retained his 45% stake in the club. Rowlett and Jones had been locked in litigation since August 2006.

A closing date is scheduled for December.
