Harrisburg Stampedes into the PIFL

September 25, 2013 - Professional Indoor Football League (PIFL) News Release

KNOXVILLE, TN (September 25, 2013) - The Professional Indoor Football League (PIFL) welcomes the Harrisburg Stampede franchise making it the eighth and newest member for the upcoming 2014 season.

Led by owner, current New Orleans Saints WR and Harrisburg native Marques Colston, the Stampede will be entering their sixth season after playing the last two seasons in the American Indoor Football (AIF) League. The Stampede performed well in the AIF, earning back-to-back championship berths before capturing the league title in 2013.

"I am very excited about the move into the PIFL this season." says Colston. "After getting a feel for their vision and the direction they are heading as a league, we look forward to the opportunity to grow together."

"The addition of Harrisburg is another piece of the puzzle as we work towards being an elite indoor football league," says PIFL Executive Committee Member Jeff Knight. "Marques' is everything you would want in a business partner, an Owner that is responsive to the community and shares our vision for a better league."

Last week the PIFL announced the addition of the expansion Trenton Freedom. Along with Harrisburg, Trenton will serve as a strong development for a growing North region that already featured the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks and the Richmond Raiders.
