The St. Clair College’s Student Athletic Association has expressed an interest in acquiring the Windsor AKO Football, and in working with St. Clair College.

The two organizations will enter into a two-month period of due diligence to see if the transition is possible. The team would play in the Canadian Junior Football League and use the soon-to-be completed Sports Park Stadium at the main campus as its home field.

Ron Seguin, Vice President, International Relations, Campus Development and Student Services, said the acquisition would allow St. Clair to recruit prospective College students interested in playing football.

“The Fratmen franchise is historic in this community.  We believe this could be an opportunity for our students to keep the franchise going and expand its resources moving forward.”

The Fratmen franchise has been owned by Mike Morencie, a former player, head coach and defensive coordinator, since 2014. The team has played in the CJFL’s Ontario Football Conference since the 1940s and has won national titles.
