Colorado Ice to Host Metro State in Preseason Game

January 23, 2013 - Indoor Football League (IFL) - Colorado Crush News Release

Fort Collins, CO - The Colorado Ice are proud to announce that they will be playing the Metropolitan State University of Denver Roadrunners Club Football Team for their pre-season game on Thursday, February 21st at 7:00 PM. The game will be played on Majestic Roofing Field at the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland, CO.

The MSU Football Club is beginning their third year of existence. They are a member of the APFL II (American Developmental Football League) with teams in Colorado, South Dakota and Wyoming. Last season, the Roadrunners finished the regular season 3-3 and made the playoffs before being eliminated in the first round. The team is coached by Jim Cobb, a former coach in the Colorado Football Conference and has experience with the Indoor Football game as well.

Said Cobb about his team, "The players we are getting in the Club Program are transferring in and are looking at this as an opportunity for them to possibly get moved up to Division II or III programs." This will be a fundraising event for the Metro State team as well. Being a club sport the players have to raise funds or pay out of pocket to participate.

This preseason game brings back a great opportunity to recognize another growing Colorado football program. "Being able to have our players in a full game will help us make our final roster decisions going into the first home game on March 1st. Metro State has stepped up to help us so we will be helping them by having a fundraiser for their club" stated Ice Head Coach Heron O'Neal.

For the Ice, the game serves as a chance to get ready for their upcoming season. The team will play this one preseason game before kicking off the start of the 2013 IFL season with a game at home against the Tri-Cities Fever at 7:00 PM on Friday, March 1st.

The Colorado Ice are proud members of the Indoor Football League (IFL). All home games are played on Majestic Roofing Field at the Budweiser Events Center located in Loveland, Colorado. 2013 Season Ticket information is available by contacting the Colorado Ice offices at (970) 472-0128.
