The Indoor Football League, who hasn’t been able to get a game in this year, announced today that it has canceled the remaining games of the 2020 season due to the many unknowns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and the lack of definitive information as to when states begin to lift the safer at home mandates and again allow large gatherings such as sporting events.
The IFL is America’s longest running professional indoor football league.
“This is a decision we take very seriously, and it comes as a result of extended, thoughtful discussion among our Board of Directors,” said IFL Commissioner Todd Tryon. “Because there are so many critical unknowns that are out of our control, we feel as a league we would be best serving the health and stability of the IFL community by taking a proactive approach and focusing our talents and our resources toward preparing for a breakout 2021 season. The health and safety of our players, coaches, staff and fans is our top concern.”
The IFL’s Board of Directors approved an extended 16-game schedule for the 2021 season to add additional value for season ticket holders and sponsors.
