BRIDGEPORT, MI -- The Continental Indoor Football League is proud to announce it has come to terms with the reigning CIFL Champion Erie Explosion to return for the 2014 season.
"The CIFL has been a good fit for the Erie Explosion," said Explosion owner Bill Stafford, "We are looking to defend our championship in 2014. The CIFL front office staff and other teams have been a pleasure to work with."
The Explosion, led by CIFL Coach of the Year Shawn Liotta, will play next season at the newly remodeled Erie Insurance Arena. The arena is currently in its final stages of an over $40 million dollar renovation and is set to reopen in August.
"The CIFL has tremendous stability, professionalism, and a vision to provide a platform for players and coaches to advance their professional careers," said Liotta, "We look forward to the challenge of defending our championship against top level competition each week during the 2014 season."
Yesterday the Explosion received a proclamation from Erie Mayor Joe Sinnott, recognizing them as only the fifth indoor football franchise to have an undefeated season in the history of the sport.
Additional members of the CIFL's contracts are still being reviewed and expansion teams are being accepted. For further details regarding the 2014 CIFL season follow the league on Twitter at @CIFL or on Facebook at CIFL-Continental-Indoor-Football-League or visit www.ciflfootball.com.
