July 13, 2016 - American Indoor Football (AIF) - Lehigh Valley Steelhawks News Release

Allentown, PA: The Lehigh Valley Steelhawks have announced they will not return to the league in 2017. Although the Steelhawks have not announced the new league they will play in, the team felt it was important to inform the AIF and its member teams of their intended departure.

The Steelhawks wish to thank John Morris and the rest of the AIF for their efforts during the 2016 season and wish them the best of luck in the future.
