New Owner of New York Titans Optimistic on AFL Club’s Future

Mar. 19, 1963 - New York has the promise of another first-class professional football team that might rival the New York Giants, in the view of the new owners of the AFL’s Titans. This group of sports-minded executives obtained control last Friday of the club for $1 million. They plan a major rebuilding job on the team previously headed by Harry Wismer. David (Sonny) Werblin (pictured), who heads the new Gotham Football Club Inc., outlined his plans by telephone today from Miami. “We plan to give New York the best football we know,” he said. “We’ll go first-class all the way. We still have some legal details to complete, but by next week we will start work to obtain the best management and playing material.” Mr. Werblin said he plans to change the name of the American Football League team.
