Professional Football Continues in Erie Under New OwnershipDecember 29, 2009 - American Indoor Football Association (AIFA) Erie Explosion
EPFI has a new operating lease with the Tullio Arena and a franchise contract with the AIFA for the return of professional football to Erie in 2010. EPFI will be releasing additional information in the next few weeks including: player signings, training camp information, cheerleader tryouts and the 2010 season schedule. In addition, EPFI will be sharing more information regarding the renaming of the team, to best reflect Erie and its hometown pride.
EPFI's vision is to secure the best talent representation to give the community a family-centered venue to rally around and demonstrate its hometown pride and love of the game. According to Bill Stafford, ownership group spokesperson, "We've been busy! Our team mantra has been `our town, our team' all decisions are being made with the community in mind. We hope to promote, support, and develop a winning team whose role in the community will be to encourage the forward movement of our city's economic development. Professional football will definitely be an asset to the increased activity in the downtown area, and, in fact, pull from the region for attendance and stimulation of our local economy - planned activities include community appearances, children's camps and more! With the support of the community and the dedication of the new ownership group, there are no limits to where we can take this thing!"
