Albany will soon have a new indoor football team to replace Antonio Brown’s Albany Empire. The new ownership would like the team to play in the Indoor Football League (IFL), which consists of 16 teams including the Arizona rattlers and Iowa Barnstormers. Those are two teams that the Albany Firebirds competed against back in the 90’s when the Firebirds won the Arena Football League championship in 1999-2000 with “Touchdown Eddie Brown.”
