With 17 days to go until the 2020 Indoor Football League season kicksoff, the IFL is releasing some new rules for the upcoming season.
One of the new rules that will be introduced this season is "the duce." This rule has been used in the National Arena League. The duce rule gives a team the opportunity to score more points. Here is how it will work in the IFL:
1. On a free kick in the final 60 seconds of the half or game, if the kick passes through the uprights, a two (2) point "Deuce" is scored, and the ball will be spotted at the B 5 as the touchback spot. 2. If Team A fouls during the kick and the kick is good, the "Deuce" is not scored, and the ball is spotted at the 25-yard line. The kick will not be repeated. 3. If Team B fouls during the kick.
The 2020 IFL season begins March 7, 2020 with the Quad City Steamwheelers traveling to San Diego, CA to face the Strike Force.
