A Decision Has Been Made
Nampa, Idaho - After a year of planning and 9 months of preparing to join the Indoor Football League or the Champions Indoor Football (League), the Idaho Horsemen has decided to go another route. We have spent the 2017 & 18 seasons watching the game and watching the business model of each league. "The indoor game is something that is exciting and is a source of entertainment that would thrive in the Treasure Valley", said Chris Reynolds, owner of the Horsemen.. After being thrust into the public eye, the community has responded by purchasing "Platinum Member" season passes right away.
"For the last couple of seasons, we have witness teams come and teams go". "We have witness team switch leagues for unknown reasons and teams caught up in lawsuits". Although Reynolds has known that these leagues to be volatile, he didn't expect some of changes occurring.
After returning from the CIF meeting and Las Vegas on August 20th, Reynolds wanted to find a solution that would benefit the Horsemen on travel. Reynolds reached out to some former football buddies and football associates and pitched them an idea, after speaking with a couple of other prospective leagues also like the American Arena League and the new Professional Arena Football (League). These 2 leagues are predominately on the east coast, but have future plans to move out west. With this information, the plan is to establish more teams out west and from all this information and brainstorming the American West Football Conference was formed. Reynolds has been working closely with the other teams to help them get up to speed.
