ends season

PARK CITY — Champions Indoor Football, of which the Wichita Force is a member, announced the 2020 season has been canceled because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

“The CIF board of directors had continuously pushed for a delay to start the season, and even approved several modified versions of a reduced schedule, all the while hoping for positive outcome, but ultimately that never materialized,” said CIF Commissioner Ricky Bertz. “Restrictions that were enforced by local and federal governments due to the pandemic, already were creating challenges for our member teams. As a league, we wanted to exhaust every possibility, before taking the necessary actions that lead to this difficult decision. Ultimately public safety was our greatest priority. Despite the best efforts of the league, along with our arena management partners, to try to play a meaningful season, this unprecedented national emergency unfortunately did not allow us to do so. The CIF member teams have immediately begun the process of reaching out to their fans and sponsors while simultaneously preparing for the 2021 season.”

The Force were to begin their sixth season, winning the CIF championship in 2016.

The team was coming off a 2-10 season last year, which is the lowest win total in team history.

The season was to begin in March.

According to the team’s news release, team officials will reach out to season ticket holders and sponsors in the coming weeks.
