TULSA, Okla. — The Tulsa Oilers are bringing indoor football back to Green Country.
Oilers owner Andy Scruto announced the decision Tuesday afternoon during a press conference with Tulsa mayor G.T. Bynum. The new team will be a part of the IFL, also known as the Indoor Football League.
The IFL was created following the merger of the United Football League and the Intense Football League in 2008.
Tulsa is the 16th current franchise to join the league, which has teams in 13 states.
“I am thrilled to be bringing an IFL team to Tulsa and the BOK Center,” said Andy Scurto. “This addition will continue the commitment from myself and the Tulsa Oilers to bring great quality entertainment to the Tulsa area, and will allow us to stay engaged with our incredible fan base year-round. Indoor Football is fast-paced and full of action and I know our fans will love the game.”
Home games will be played at the BOK Center. The inaugural season is scheduled to start next March.
The team is currently looking for name suggestions. You can submit names at tulsaindoorfootball.com.
Season tickets are now on sale, and can be purchased by calling or texting 918-632-7825.
