Elite Indoor Football announces a new team will join their 2022 season, the Alabama Empire.

Apparently, the Empire are replacing the Birmingham Ravens, which has been removed from the league's website.

Elite Indoor Football's first season was 2017. Each team will have eight players on the field.

Currently, there is one other Alabama-based team in the EIF, the Southern Renegades (Sulligent).

According to sources inside the Empire franchise, the Birmingham Ravens have been purchased by Tracey Adamson and renamed.

The Ravens head coach, Eddie Hall, will remain as head coach of the Empire.

The Empire's schedule was released but there has been no announcement regarding home venue. The Empire hopes to play home games in the Pelham Civic Complex arena.

The Alabama Empire announce they will not be playing in Birmingham but in Montgomery, at the Emory Folmar Soccer Complex.

Securing a venue in Birmingham proved difficult with the 2022 World Games being played here.

There is a slight hope of future seasons being played in Birmingham, however.

The EIF claims the Empire failed to follow league requirements and away venue rules and guidelines.

Further actions are pending, following meeting with the Empire's home venue, the Emory Folmar Soccer Complex.
