Indoor Football League
The Professional Indoor Football League (PIFL) is a regional professional indoor football league set to begin its inaugural season in 2012. Like the Lone Star Football League, the PIFL is mainly composed of teams formerly from Southern Indoor Football League (five former SIFL teams and one expansion team in total).
Despite the name, this PIFL has no connections to the original Professional Indoor Football League.
On June 30th, 2012, PIFL Cup I was played in Albany, Georgia between the Albany Panthers and the Richmond Raiders. It was played at the James H. Gray Civic Center in front of 6,194 people. Albany won the game 60-56.
Following a successful 2012, the PIFL added two new teams for the 2013 season. The Lehigh Valley Steelhawks of the Indoor Football League, as well as the Charlotte Speed, who had previously committed to play in the IFL as well. This increased the number of teams from six to eight, as well as opening up the possibility of divisional play.
