Waco, TX- The new National Indoor Football League (NIFL) franchise, Waco Indoor Football announced the team's 2004 regular season schedule today.
Waco will open the season against the 2003 NIFL Atlantic South Champion Lake Charles LandSharks on Saturday, March 13 at the Heart O' Texas Coliseum in Waco. The following week, March 20, Waco will host the other NIFL Texas expansion team the Wichita Falls Thunder.

The LandSharks have been in the playoffs every year, and they always field a team that is well coached and very physical," stated Garmez Parks, part owner of the Waco franchise. "Last year, they destroyed the playoff chances for the Tennessee RiverHawks by breaking the quarterback's collarbone on the first play from scrimmage."
Waco will play 14 regular season games in the Southern Division of the National Indoor Football League's Atlantic Conference. In addition to Waco and Lake Charles, the Southern Division includes the Houma Bayou Bucks, Beaumont Drillers, and the Tupelo FireAnts.
