IMO the life of the conference is contingent on 2 things right now:
1. The success of the new complex. Super invested there, and with that kind of long term debt programs that lose money every year would have to be reevaluated if that complex can't bring teams in long term.
2. The long term profitability in slow pitch in general. The equipment focus and margins must remain high enough to support that kind of investment into these players. They cost a shit ton of money. If equipment manufs find they can't get enough market share, and being to pull out, so does the budget to support such "showcase marketable" teams.
