Professional football returns to Frisco this spring with the launch of the Indoor Football League’s newest member. The team will be owned by Steve and Kim Germain and their children Jessica, Austin, and Zach, and will play at Comerica Center.
The team name is expected to be announced in the coming weeks, along with several other exciting announcements sure to excite longtime indoor football fans in the North Texas region.
The Indoor Football League is America’s longest running indoor football league and features the premier athletes and coaches in the sport of indoor football. The addition of Frisco gives the league 13 teams for the 2020 season. The Frisco team will kick off its inaugural season on Thursday, March 12, 2020.
“We are super excited about doing business in Frisco, Texas,” said Jessica Germain. “We literally could have placed this team in any city in the country and we chose Frisco because of its people, its reputation as Sports City U.S.A., and just because there is so much excitement and energy in and around the city. Frisco is a spectacular area and the people of Frisco deserve this exciting sport.”
The Germain family has been committed to the indoor football game for many years, as owners and as major sponsors of the indoor football team in Columbus, OH, through their various vehicle dealerships. No strangers to professional sports and entertainment, the Germain family has also owned stakes in NASCAR teams and has been involved in naming rights of arenas and entertainment venues.
“Mr. Germain is committed to making indoor football in Frisco a huge success and he and his family are in this for the long haul, as you will see as we begin to make announcements in the very near future,” said Stephen Evans, President and General Manager of the Frisco team. “You could not ask for a better family or an ownership group that cares as much about the indoor football game than the Germains. We look forward to matching their enthusiasm for the sport with our play on the field to bring Frisco a team they will be proud to support.
“Make no mistake, we have extremely high expectations. As you will soon learn, our management team and our coaching staff are collectively approaching 100 years in the indoor football game. We’ve won championships, but most of all, we’ve successfully assimilated the local community wherever we have been, and we look forward to doing so here in Frisco.”
The team will soon make announcements about coaches, new player signings, ticket sales, and how to partner with the new organization.
“We welcome Frisco’s newest professional sports team to our wonderful city,” said Michael Landin, General Manager of Comerica Center. “We are excited about what they have in store for Frisco and know that with the ownership they have in place, their management expertise, and the resources they have committed to the team, we are going to be able to host this exciting brand of football for many years to come.”
