IFL Announces 2016 Schedule

The Indoor Football League (IFL) is proud to announce its 2016 regular season schedule. The 18-week, 96-game schedule kicks off on Friday, February 26 and concludes on Saturday, June 25.

The 2016 season marks the IFL's eighth season of play. Two new members, the Minnesota Havok and Spokane are set to take the field next spring and join ten incumbents in a battle of the 2016 United Bowl crown. The 2016 season brings the return of divisional alignments to each conference. The conference and divisional alignments are as follows:
 

United Conference

North Division

Cedar Rapids Titans

Green Bay Blizzard

Minnesota Axemen

 

Midwest Division

Iowa Barnstormers

Minnesota Havok

Sioux Falls Storm

 

Intense Conference

Central Division

Colorado Crush

Nebraska Danger

Wichita Falls Nighthawks

West Division

Billings Wolves

Spokane 

Tri-Cities Fever

For the first time in league history, the IFL's 12 teams will play a 16 game schedule (eight home/eight away) over 18 weeks. Each team's bye weeks will occur sporadically over the course of the season. After observing a league-wide bye week at the conclusion of the season during Fourth of July Weekend (July 1st-3rd), postseason play will begin the weekend of July 8th and will culminate in with the United Bowl championship during the weekend of July 22nd.

 "We are very proud to reveal the 2016 IFL Regular Season Schedule," stated IFL Commissioner Mike Allshouse.  "The tremendous competition that our 12 member teams supply, coupled with rivalry games fully featured, the 2016 season is shaping up to be the most exciting in league history."
Opening weekend of the 2016 schedule kicks off with a double header when the defending United Bowl Champion Sioux Falls Storm take on the Minnesota Axemen and the Iowa Barnstormers host an old rival in the Green Bay Blizzard (7:05 CT).
Another double-header caps off the second night of IFL kickoff weekend on Saturday, February 27. New IFL member the Spokane  will square off against in-state rival Tri-Cities Fever for the first time in six seasons. The defending Intense Conference Champion Nebraska Danger get their season started against the Wichita Falls Nighthawks. IFL Kickoff weekend concludes on Sunday, February 28 as the newly christened Colorado Crush host the Billings Wolves (3:00 PM MT)
