The Indoor Football League (IFL) will crown its champion just south of Las Vegas, starting this summer.
This season’s event will take place August 13 at The Dollar Loan Center, the new 5,567-seat arena that is home to the IFL’s Vegas Knight Hawks and situated minutes from the Las Vegas Strip.
“This is another giant step forward for our league,” said Commissioner Todd Tryon. “We have had a desire to go with a predetermined site for a couple years now. Given the location, venue, partnerships, title sponsor of Dollar Loan Center and a three-year commitment, the timing was now.”
The event, formerly known as The United Bowl, will be rebranded as The Dollar Loan Center IFL National Championship.
“It is great to see yet another premier sporting event call the Las Vegas Valley home,” said Vegas Golden Knights President and Co-Chief Executive Officer Kerry Bubolz. “The community has embraced the Vegas Knight Hawks and I know our fans will enjoy seeing the best of the IFL compete in our building.”
“We have been major fans of Indoor Football since its inception,” said Chuck Brennan, founder and chief executive officer of Dollar Loan Center. “Not only were we able to bring an IFL team to our state-of-the-art new venue in Henderson (Vegas Knight Hawks), but now we are bringing the biggest game of the year to our house for the next three years. Elated would be an understatement from team DLC.”
The Dollar Loan Center IFL National Championship game will be played on August 13. The winner of the Western Conference and the Eastern Conference championship games will compete to be crowned winner of the 13th IFL Champion.
