A new Indoor Football League team is coming to Frisco, the league announced Nov. 25.

The team’s name will be announced in the next few days, according to an IFL news release.

The team will be owned by Steve and Kim Germain and their children, Jessica, Austin and Zach. The family owns Germain Automotive Group, a privately owned dealer group. Germain Automotive Group has sponsored IFL teams.

“We are super excited about doing business in Frisco, Texas,” Jessica Germain said in a statement. “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 league will have 13 teams in the 2020 season with the addition of the Frisco team.


“Make no mistake, we have extremely high expectations,” said Stephen Evans, the Frisco team’s president and general manager. “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 IFL was created in 2008 and, with the addition of the Frisco team, has teams in 10 different states.

Indoor football team Texas Revolution, which was once an IFL team, was playing in Frisco up to this year. The Champions Indoor Football league board of directors terminated the team's league membership in the spring.
