The uniqueness of the GIL has captured many people’s attention in both Canada and the United States. The business model is one of a kind, and is really an indoor version of the Canadian Football League (CFL). East Texas is rumored to be working on getting a GIL team. Where in East Texas, we do not know. East Texas cities that have hosted arena teams before are: Beaumont (Ford Arena) and Lufkin. The footprint for the GIL was thought to be in Ontario, Canada and in the Great Lakes Region in the United States, but plans have changed. According to league owner David Parsons, he plans to have a North Division and a South Division. If the ownership group in East Texas is accepted in the league, a formal announcement is expected within the coming weeks. Other teams are also in the works in the Northeast U.S. and Canada, but there is no estimated date when the first team will be announced.
