Storm Move Back to I-F-L

Storm Move Back to I-F-L

The Sioux Falls Storm have decided to re-join the I-F-L (now back to 8 teams) after announcing 3 months ago they were leaving for the C-I-F, a league that had 15 teams and included old rivals like Sioux City and Omaha. But they had a change of heart and owner Todd Tryon made his feelings know in a letter to the fans on the Storm web site Wednesday.

Storm Nation:

After very careful consideration, the Sioux Falls Storm have elected to move back to the IFL for the 2018 season.  It’s been quite a three-month journey to find our way back to the league we have called home for the past 9 seasons.  As we were excited to resurrect some old rivalries, it quickly became evident that what we were presented to make the move, was not what we were getting.  We pride ourselves in offering our community the best product in the industry, and given the restrictions, stipulations and restraints that were being placed on us we could not possibly offer what Storm Nation is accustomed to.  Sometimes you need to explore other options to appreciate what you have been a part of for so many years. As we stepped away from the IFL and explored another option, it became glaringly obvious that the IFL was and is the best league in the industry.  We were very fortunate we saw this before it was too late.  The IFL has made multiple adjustments to its business plan over the past few months that should position our league as the front runner in this industry for many years to come.  We are excited for the upcoming season and look very much forward to reclaiming our position as the “king of indoor football.”
