Sports Community Fukui dissolving?

Sports Community Fukui, the company that runs the Fukui Miracle Elephants out of the BC League, is apparently dissolving due to economic difficulties.  But that shouldn't spell the end of the Miracle Elephants as there are discussions about the team being handed off to a new company that will be wholly-owned by Fukui Shimbun.  This proposal will be further discussed at an upcoming shareholders meeting on the 25th.

Sports Community Fukui ended December 80M yen in the red.  The transfer over to Fukui Shimbun will allow the team to continue playing (the coaches and players will all be returning for the 2010 season) under somewhat stable economic conditions while it continues figure out new ways to secure funding.
