Just a couple weeks removed from hosting LGBT Night, the San Francisco Bulls minor league hockey team has announced via press release that it is ceasing operations effective immediately, which just so happens to come right in the middle of the season.

The Bulls will be closing up shop less than one and a half years after the start of operation in October 2012. The team finishes the season with a 15-20-5 record, however, quits with 32 games still left to be played on their schedule.

“We want to thank all of our fans for your support and loyalty over the last two seasons,” said President and Head Coach of the Bulls, Pat Curcio. “It’s been such a memorable time here with you in San Francisco, and we’ve especially appreciated all of your positive feedback over the past week.”

The club was hoping to reach a deal with new ownership in order to keep business alive. But the pursuit proved to be fruitless and the Bulls were left with no option but to fold.

“Bringing hockey to San Francisco was a dream; we have great talent on our team, and had a great vision for what the team could be. Things didn’t pan out the way we had hoped. It’s sad, and disconcerting, but we’re unfortunately left with no other choice at this point. ”

Fans with tickets to upcoming games can request a refund up until Feb. 28 via e-mail.
