The Premier Basketball League announced July 8, 2015, that it has awarded an expansion franchise to Felicimo Sports Group, headed by area businessman Donald Felice, to participate in the 2015-16 season in Niagara County, New York.  Felice has named his franchise the WNY Thundersnow to capture area topography and weather that it is world famous for.  With the addition of the WNY Thundersnow joining the Rochester RazorSharks in New York, it will create a competitive rivalry in the East Division of the PBL.

“We are very excited about being a part of the PBL,” stated owner and Niagara County native Donald Felice.  “Joining the PBL creates an opportunity to keep professional basketball in Niagara County with an established and credible league.  Niagara County loves basketball and our team will provide exciting and competitive professional basketball for the city.  Since I am a native of the area, I am committed to our community.  Our basketball organization will be partnering with local organizations and schools in the community to promote life skills, team building and leadership,” continues Felice. 

“With the defending champs just down the street, I know I am going to have to put together a good team to knock them off.  With that in mind, I am negotiating with former league MVP to join us as well as a former NBA player to man the helm for us.  I am also finalizing our head coach, who is also very capable and up and coming in the sport.  I feel the future is real bright for us here in the PBL,” said Felice.

Felice has been involved in numerous business ventures in the past throughout the area.  Felice, a former pro athlete has successfully made the transition from playing to the business side of the sport.  Felice is also a successful agent, owning A.N.D. Sports & Entertainment, a full service agency for pro athletes and entertainers. 

“We are glad to be able to bring Niagara County into the PBL,” said PBL Commissioner Dennis Truax. “Felice will bring his business expertise and extensive business contacts to the PBL and we expect this franchise to be successful on and off the court.”
