The Rebel Indoor Football League issues a press release announcing the formation of a new indoor football league that will begin play in March 2017.

Currently, the RIFL claims to have two Alabama-based teams, the Birmingham Bombers and the Huntsville Avengers. Other teams from Mississippi and Tennessee are also planned.

Mike Zak is the league's founder.

Franchises will cost owners between $245,000-$365,000. If an owner of an established indoor football team moves their franchise from another league, the fee is reduced to $65,000 and a $2,000 per month league fee.

Each team will play a ten game schedule, with five home games and five road games. Playoffs and a championship game will occur after the regular season is completed.

A league meeting for owners will take place in Las Vegas in the near future.

Shortly after the league's announcement, their website was taken down and beyond that point nothing more was heard from the league.
