READING, Pa. -

Reading will soon welcome its newest professional sports franchise.

Missouri Sports Holdings will hold a news conference Monday to announce the third sports team to play at the Santander Arena, formerly the Sovereign Center, in Reading.

Missouri Sports Holdings already owns three other teams, including the Pennsylvania Roar, a member of the Major Indoor Soccer League that will play its inaugural season at the arena this year.

The company's other two teams are the St. Louis Ambush, also a member of the Major Indoor Soccer League, and the St. Louis Attack, a member of the X-League Indoor Football League.

The Santander Arena is also home to the 2013 Kelly Cup champion Reading Royals, which will play a pre-season game before the hometown fans Friday night.

Other professional sports teams that have played at the Sovereign Center include the Reading Express indoor football team and the Reading Railers basketball team.
