The Sioux City Bandits, members of the Champions Indoor Football (CIF) league, are excited to announce a pre-season game against the Kearney Hawks of the Indoor Football Association (IFA) on February 18 at the Tyson Events Center in Sioux City, Iowa.
The Hawks are four-year veterans of indoor football and the Sioux City Bandits will be starting their 16th season. Both teams are glad to have the opportunity to test the players on the field in a real game before their seasons start.
"We are very excited to play such a great team in the Sioux City Bandits. The Bandits have a long history of great teams and it is an honor to be on the same field as the Bandits," said Anthony Campana, head coach of the Kearney Hawks. "This is a great opportunity help us get where we want to be."
“Playing a preseason game is a valuable tool for our assessment and development of our players. We are excited to get back on the field,” said Head Coach Erv Strohbeen.
The Bandits will start their regular season the following week on February 25 at the Tyson Events Center against the long-time I-29 rivals, the Omaha Beef. Season tickets are on sale at the Tyson Events Center Box Office at 401 Gordon Drive.
