Rome Changes Name to Rampage

May 24, 2011 - Ultimate Indoor Football League (UIFL) - Rome Rampage News Release

ROME, GA - The Ultimate Indoor Football League (UIFL) and the Rome, Georgia franchise has announced the team will officially be named the Rome Rampage.

Initially named the River Dogs at the press conference, the league decided to change the name to Rampage due to several licensing issues. Not only was the name changed, the franchise changed the team's color scheme. The new franchise will be red, black and silver, replacing the original blue, black and silver scheme.

The franchise did, however, keep the spooky dog logo.

The Rome Rampage will be apart of the league's new South Division, and will play their home games at the Forum Civic Center. The exact alignment of the South Division will be decided following the completion of expansion. The UIFL plans to expand to 14 to 16 teams with two divisions.
