« Back
March 16, 2005 - Omaha, NE - United Indoor Football has announced the postponement of the Dayton Warbirds home opener with the Peoria Rough Riders, which was scheduled for Thursday, March 17, in Dayton, Ohio. The postponement is due to safety concerns with the game system and playing surfaces as well as compliance issues with the league. The UIF league office has issued the postponement to allow the Dayton Warbirds to make the necessary arrangements to meet league requirements and safety standards. The UIF office states "safety is the first and foremost concern for players, coaches, and fans. We do not feel that it is safe enough for play at this time". The schedule is being adjusted accordingly for a date to be announced.

The UIF inaugural season opener will be in Evansville, Indiana, where the Evansville Bluecats host the Tennessee Valley Raptors in a South Division contest. Kick-off is scheduled for 7:05 CT on Saturday, March 19. This will be the first time these two teams have met. The UIF opening weekend continues with four other great games. The Tupelo FireAnts host a South Division game as they battle the Lexington Horsemen in a 7:30 CT kick-off on Saturday. In other Week 1 action, the Sioux City Bandits host the Black Hills Red Dogs and the Sioux Falls Storm visit the Omaha Beef in two strong North Division match-ups on Saturday, March 19. Both contests are scheduled for kick-off at 7:05 CT. Week 1 will conclude on Sunday, March 20, as the Fort Wayne Freedom entertain the Ohio Valley Greyhounds in a Midwest Division game.
