For the first time since 2004, the city of Enid will once again be home to an indoor football team.
On Tuesday, Champions Indoor Football commissioner Rick Bertz made the official announcement at Central National Bank Center, alongside the team’s general manager and head coach Richard Davis and Enid mayor Bill Shewey.
Season tickets are currently on sale with a six-game package for $72. Individual ticket prices begin at $12.
The team’s name, colors and mascot will be decided on by the fans in a contest, which will run through August 15. Fans can submit their ideas in a form on the team’s new website, oklahomaindoorfootball.com.
The contest winner will receive a pair of season tickets and all contestant will have a chance to win one of 15 inauguration season T-shirts.
Indoor football first came to Enid in 2002 with the Oklahoma Crude, who enjoyed little success in its three seasons, winning just four games in the now-defunct National Indoor Football League.
Along with Enid, the league in May introduced another expansion team, the Western Michigan Ironmen.
