New LA KISS CEO Joe Windham gave his “State of the Franchise” address (audio from AFLFANZONE.com) to season ticket holders upstairs in The Honda Center’s Club Section at The Grand Terrace before the game and was very informative regarding his forthcoming plans for the LA KISS. In addition to talking about the future of the team and telling the fans they are here to stay, he also discussed improved housing for the team, and a new focus for fan merchandise and other changes to improve the player and fan experience. Season ticket holders already receive all sort of perks throughout the season, including a KISS concert. Windham also announced that season ticket holders can bring two friends for free to the next game against his former team, the Arizona Rattlers this Saturday, June 27.
