When a professional sports team performs poorly, attendance nearly always bottoms out. If this is the case, upper management might begin to raise questions about possibly relocating the team to a new city. Just take a look at the Los Angeles Rams, the Montreal Expos and Brooklyn Dodgers for recent examples. If a franchise moves across the country, they normally try to keep as many employees as possible to avoid infrastructure issues. When moving, these people can hire a corporate relocation company to help them transport personal belongings.
For example, the Phoenix Coyotes of the NHL are currently in playoff contention, but the Bellingham Herald reported that they are embroiled in controversy over whether or not to move the franchise.
"The ownership situation is something that obviously isn't enjoyable, by any means," said team captain Shane Doan, according to the news source. "It definitely causes anxiety because people have got families, and it's one of those things that we would love to be settled."
If people working for the Coyotes are forced to move to Seattle (which is a probable destination), they might consider hiring affordable moving van lines.
