The National Indoor Football League (“NIFL”) has begun organizing the more than 34 teams it will have around the country. This month the NIFL will announce its first football team, which is expected to be announced in Dallas, Texas. NIFL management claims that it will take advantage of, and leverage, all forms of social media and entertainment to connect with fans, investors and media partners nationwide.

The NIFL was the only Indoor Football League in America partnered with the NFL for officiating in 2004. Previously, CNN named Indoor Football the fastest growing sport in America in 2005 and the sport continues that growth. NIFL has rolled out its new $100 Billion business strategy and team development plan and will begin its 2017 season by allowing fans to invest directly into their favorite teams.

NIFL President and CEO, Carolyn Shiver said the league plans to leverage media and entertainment technology as well as gaming to connect with fans and stay in touch with the leagues fan base and attract new fans and partners.

“Technology is evolving and so are sports fans,” said Shiver. “Our goal will be to stay connected with fans and be responsive in real time to address their interests and keep in touch.”

All games will be aired on local channels and available nationally on the NIFL network. The games will air to mobile devices and the internet as iP Video also. NIFL is currently negotiating and finalizing those contracts and will release that information when it is available.
