RICHMOND, Va. — The Indoor Football League has announced the addition of a team in the Seattle suburb of Kent, Wash.
The addition of Kent brings the IFL’s number of teams for the 2010 season to 26. A nickname has not yet been announced for the team, which will play at the ShoWare Center in Kent.
Divisional alignments for the 2010 season have not yet been announced, but Kent is expected to play in a division that includes the Billings Outlaws, Tri-Cities (Kennewick, Wash.) Fever, Fairbanks Grizzlies and Alaska (Anchorage) Wild.
Billings is the defending IFL champion.
“The IFL had its eye on this Seattle suburb for two years,” said IFL commissioner Tommy Benizio. “ Tim Higgins and his staff at the ShoWare Center seemed equally eager to have our product in their beautiful venue.”
