Team Lowers Ticket Prices, Begins New League
March 25, 2002 - The RiverCity Renegades begin their second season of indoor football this weekend with the start of the National Indoor Football League schedule. The Renegades joined the NIFL after competing the previous year in the Indoor Professional Football League. In addition to linking with a new League featuring more teams and greater stability, the Renegades unveiled a new ticket pricing structure allowing fans to enjoy the same excitement at a lower cost.
The 2002 NIFL season will consist of 14 games (seven home and seven away) running from March through the first week of July. The five division winners and three wild card teams will advance to the post-season, with the NIFL Championship Game scheduled for August 3.
The Renegades open the season Saturday night (7:30 p.m.) in Bismarck, North Dakota against the Roughriders. After traveling to Wheeling, West Virginia (Ohio Valley Greyhounds) for Game Two on April 5, the Renegades open the home schedule against the Lake Charles LandSharks on April 13 (7:30 p.m.) at the Family Arena. Following the home opener, the Renegades hit the road again for consecutive weeks at the Energy and ThunderCats before playing six of the final nine games at the Family Arena.
The NIFL features 21 teams for the 2002 season, an increase over the three teams that ended the season with the IPFL. Franchises hail from the Southeastern, Midwestern and Northwestern parts of the United States, with teams spreading from North Carolina to Wyoming. RiverCity will compete in the North Division of the Atlantic Conference along with the Tennessee ThunderCats, Winston-Salem Energy and the Greyhounds.
Season ticket packages are now on sale along with individual and group ticket sales available for any game during the season. Season ticket packages range from $32-$160, while single-game tickets are $5, $8, $16, $18 or $22. Most ticket prices have been lowered from last season and a family of four can enjoy Renegades football for just $20. For information or to purchase Renegades tickets, please call (314) 216-2000.
