In 2021 after being out of indoor football for seven years the Louisville Xtreme entered the Indoor Football League as an expansion team. Now after almost 2 months of playing in the IFL the team has been removed from the league.
In a article posted on the IFL website, they said the team was removed failure to meet and maintain league obligations.
“This is a regrettable situation, but as our league continues to generate positive momentum this became a necessary action,” said IFL Commissioner Todd Tryon. “We have tremendous respect for Victor Cole and his partners in Louisville and the hard work they put into developing Louisville as a viable IFL franchise. However, as we position the IFL for long-term success, it is imperative that we maintain the high standards we have set as a league.”
Louisville will be removed from the league’s remaining schedule, starting with this weekend’s IFL games. This Saturday’s IFL Game of the Week on Stadium, which was to feature the Xtreme taking on the Frisco Fighters, will now emanate from Tucson and feature a matchup between the Tucson Sugar Skulls and the Massachusetts Pirates.
