The Rochester RazorSharks basketball team tells News10NBC that a deal is in place to purchase the Dome Arena in Henrietta.

RazorSharks owner Dr. Sev Hrywnak says the Dome will be turned into a 5 to 7,000 seat community facility where the team will play.

Hrywnak says it made "no economic sense" to stay partnered with the Philadelphia company that owns the Blue Cross Arena, where the RazorSharks currently play.

The Dome is expected to also be used for indoor soccer and football and possibly an additional ice rink.
