Pro Arena Football returning to Evv in 2019

BREAKING NEWS: Indoor football is coming to the Ford Center. The National Gridiron League has awarded a team to Evansville. The Indiana FireBirds will begin play this spring inside the Ford Center.


The league is a new effort, playing its first season in 2019. Currently, of the planned 12 teams only 5 have confirmed venues, including our Indiana FireBirds. Those other teams are in Topeka, Wilkes-Barre, Roanoke, VA, and Norfolk, VA.

And this has what to do with the Aces? Pro hockey will survive longer than this.

I don't know.
But, he actually owns and operates this site.
If he wanted to post photos of his neighbors niece's first steps, he has that right.

Does anyone know when the indoor football season is? I see in the tweet it says the spring - just not sure what that timeframe is. As long as it's not during the basketball season, I'm all for it!
8-19 .....1986
16-12 ....1987 --- MCC Champ
21-8 .....1988 --- NIT
25-6 .....1989 --- NCAA
Key point, be patient, never judge a coach on Year 1!

They will be using the Ford Center. Which I thought made it a little bit relevant.

I agree, it doesn't seem like an effort that will last long.

I think anything sports related, especially in regards to our arena is relevant. We have discussed the Thunderbolts and Icemen several times in here. I would have to say anything that is competing with the Aces for the sport fans dollar is very relevant. I appreciate that pafan doesn't practice heavy handed censorship on here. What is not important to one, may be for another. With that said, many boards have an off-topic section, where a variety of topics are discusses. Nothing more than a pure suggestion would be to set a new section up for that.

I am not aware of any minor league arena football team lasting more than a few seasons. I know everyone we played with the Bluecats is long gone as well. I wish them luck, and will probably attend some games, but I wouldn't suggest buying full year season tickets.
