On November 14, 2019 the franchise rights to the NCDC franchise were sold to the [[Philadelphia Hockey Club]] starting with the 2020-21 season. The lower level teams will remain in their USPHL leagues. Over the next few months the organization was sold along with the [[Bridgewater Ice Arena]]. The organization reverted to the Bridgewater Bandits name for the 2020-21 season.
