Broadcasting TV channel All Sports Television Network has picked up the Champions Indoor Football league pro-team Wichita Force to “introduce” the sports franchise to their viewers.
All Sports President Roger Neal Smith expressed excitement for the deal.
“We are excited about bringing arena football to our viewers,” he said according to EIN Presswire. “Arena football is a very fast-paced game that is still largely unknown by football fans. We are looking forward to the opportunity to provide die-hard football fans the opportunity to watch their favorite sport during the spring.”
Wichita Force managing partner Jeff Martin echoed those statements saying, “After a challenging year, we can’t wait to have our players back on the field for the best season yet.”
He continued, “We always want to partner with the best, so we are thrilled to team up with All Sports Television Network to bring our games to fans everywhere.”
This comes on the heels of the announcement from the Champions Indoor Football that Todd Walkenhorst would be replacing Ricky Bertz as league commissioner.
“This has been a transition that we have discussed for a while,” Walkenhorst said in a press release. “I am grateful to the league and the owners who have worked with me to make this timing work for everybody involved. I know that Ricky was ready to put more time into the Omaha franchise, and this is a year that really needed his extra focus. It is obviously a challenging time for all businesses and people. I am looking forward to working with our teams, players, and fans to move forward through this season and beyond.”
The Champions Indoor Football is a professional arena football league that was formed after the merger of the Champions Professional Indoor Football League and Lone Star Football League.
The league canceled their 2020 season due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but that the 2021 season would proceed with six teams, including the reactivated team Dodge City Law.
