"We're very much looking forward to bringing the 'NPF Back to School Tour' to Normal in early October. We feel there is great synergy in the area for the possibility of expansion, and we're anticipating seeing a big interest from fans throughout Central Illinois," said NPF President/Commissioner Cheri Kempf. "We'll be bringing some of the game's very best athletes, and we'll be playing an extremely competitive ISU team that qualified for the NCAA Tournament a season ago."
