LowDown is ringing in the holidays with live music

The local sports scene got a big boost when Andy Scurto, a California-based IT and insurance entrepreneur and sports investor, bought the Tulsa Oilers hockey team in September 2021, promising to revitalize the fan experience .

Since then, it has continued to have a major local impact.

Scurto helped improve the Oilers’ marketing efforts, helping Tulsa finish fourth in ECHL attendance. An average of 5,834 fans saw the team play its home games at the BOK Center last season, the team’s largest number since 2017-18.

Scurto also provided a showcase for elite women’s hockey in April when the Minnesota Whitecaps of the Premier Hockey Federation and the Buffalo Beauts, both owned by Scurto, faced off at the BOK Center.

Scurto then purchased the Oilers Ice Center, Tulsa’s only full-size ice rink, bringing all the ice under one ownership and implementing impressive renovations to the facility.

After that, Scurto bought the old Macy’s building in the Promenade Mall. It’s being converted into a two-ice rink, which will be a big help to the local hockey, figure skating and curling scene when it’s ready next year.

Finally, in July, Scurto announced that it had purchased an expansion franchise in the Indoor Soccer League, to begin play at the BOK Center in March 2023. There was a contest to name the team, which gave resulting in the Oilers name for the football team. and since then, the Tulsa Oilers football team has hired a coach (Marvin Jones) and started signing players, with a big local tryout in late October.
