Pirates to Hold Press Conference to Announce League and Venue Plans

The Massachusetts Pirates would like to formally disclose that the organization will be holding a press conference with league and venue announcements on Wednesday August 19 at 2:00 p.m. EST.

The attendees available for interviews are the following:

  • Founder, Co-Owner, President, GM Jawad Yatim
  • League Commissioner
  • DCU Center General Manager Sandy Dunn

The press conference will be held at the Fallon Health Care Pavillion directly outside the box office of the DCU Center located at 50 Foster St. Worcester, Ma. 01608

There isn’t another individual more excited for this event than Pirates founder Jawad Yatim.

“This will be a very exciting day for us as an organization. Every decision we make is in the best interest of our organization, the sport, and Pirate Nation,” Yatim told masspiratesfootball.com.”We have been looking forward to addressing some crucial aspects of our organization’s future and that’s exactly what we will be doing.”

The historic press conference will be open to the media and fans with the capacity in accordance to COVID-19 guidelines placed by governor Charlie Baker and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The event will be catered with food and drinks available for the press as well as a live DJ providing music entertainment for the event.

There will be no seating present at the pavilion for guests and masks must be worn at all times by spectators due to COVID-19 guidelines and the safety of all in attendance. In case of inclement weather the press conference will be moved indoors, as only members of the Media and Pirates staff will be allowed into the DCU center. This would be pre-determined and based on the week’s weather forecast.

This event will be live streamed on the Massachusetts Pirates facebook (@MAPirates) and instagram (@mass.pirates) accounts. Following the press conference, there will also be a live Q&A for fans nationwide who have any particular questions they would like to ask.
