Three weeks after the owner announced the Rochester Lancers would not return for the 2014-15 season, the indoor soccer team says arrangements have been made to keep the team going.

Salvatore "SoccerSam" Fantauzzo says in a blog post on the team's web site that the Rochester Lancers will indeed return. In the post, he says that he was convinced by star player Doug Miller to bring the team back and says Miller will act as the President of Team Operations going forward. Also helping out Fantauzzo and Miller with the team will be Rich Randall, who will act as President of Business Operations.

Officials say the team will announce their home owner for next season on September 3.
