NIFL is a patent protected league playing Indoor Football. The NIFL began play in 2001 as a league. The league roots began with the PIFL in 1998 with the original teams that played Indoor Football for the first time.
The NIFL was the largest league in the United States until 2007 when the league made the business decision to stop play for a period of time and come back with a strong business plan to involve communities in the success of the teams. That plan is now in place and the NIFL will again take its position as the marque league in the United States.
In 2005, the NIFL began its partnership with the NFL in developing officials, players and safety on the playing field. The NIFL will continue to pursue safety for our players and officials first as we strive to put the best game on the field.
The NIFL plays the game of football on a 50 yard field with rule restrictions that keep the ball on the field of play. Keeping the ball on the playing field makes the game much faster paced and produces more fan excitement!
