Champions Indoor Football (CIF) is a professional indoor American football league created in 2014 out of the merger between the Champions Professional Indoor Football League (CPIFL) and Lone Star Football League (LSFL), plus one team from the Indoor Football League and two expansion teams.[1]

History

Formation of the league

The merger which formed the CIF was announced on August 22, 2014,[2] after it had been rumored that the CPIFL and LSFL had been in discussions of a possible merger since July 31, 2014.[3]

The Gary Dawgs, originally announced as a charter member of the CIF, rebranded as the Illiana Eagles after a change in ownership and delayed their entry into the league until 2016.[4][5] On February 21, 2015, the new owners of the New Mexico Stars announced that the team would not enter the league as planned after head coach Dominic Bramante resigned two weeks before the scheduled start of training camp.[6] On March 3, the Albuquerque-based Duke City Gladiators announced they were joining the CIF for the 2015 season and would play an abbreviated 11-game schedule as a partial replacement for the New Mexico Stars.[7][8]
