Indoor Football League Announces New Team in Prescott Valley
PRESCOTT VALLEY, AZ - The Indoor Football League announced today that Prescott Valley Arizona has been awarded a new team franchise and will be joining the Indoor Football League. This team will be the third IFL franchise in Arizona and will make The Findlay Toyota Center it's new home.
"We are extremely excited to be adding another team in the State of Arizona. When the Northern Arizona Suns of the G League decided to leave the area, I thought this would be a great market to join the Tucson Sugar Skulls and Arizona Rattlers who are already in the IFL" said Trey Medlock, President of S & P Sports LLC.
The team would like to get the community involved from the very start by helping them choose a name.
"We want to reflect the culture and values of the community so we are asking everyone in the community to submit their ideas for our new name. Our organization is nothing without its fans so we plan to be involved in the Prescott Valley and quad city community and give back as much as possible" said Trey Medlock.
"There are three main objectives we look for when it comes to expansion. Quality of ownership, relationship with the arena, and geographic location. Prescott Valley checks all three of those boxes!" said Todd Tyron, commissioner of the IFL.
The Prescott Valley Franchise will become the 16th team in the IFL that also includes the recent addition of the Columbus Wild Dogs. The Prescott Valley team is set to begin to play in March 2021 and the league is in the midst of finalizing additional expansion news on their end shortly.
