Sioux Falls Storm began their Bowl Appearance streak with appearances in the 2005 and 2006 United Bowls, where they beat Lexington Horsemen 72-64 (2006). The streak has continued until 2019 (inclusive) in the Indoor Football League (see: https://eirball.ie/2020/02/17/indoor-football-league-2009-2012/ and https://eirball.ie/2020/02/17/indoor-football-league-2013-present/ )
United Indoor Football was an Indoor American Football League that operated in the Midwest from 20005-2008, before merging with the Intense Football League (Texas) to form the Indoor Football League, which became the Premier AAA Indoor American Football League west of the Mississippi.
About Arena / Indoor Football
Indoor Football, also known as Arena Football was developed in 1986 as an 8v8 form of Indoor American Football. After an initial few seasons where the game was developed with a 4 team league, a full seasons League with eventually over a dozen teams was developed in the 1990 which was considered by the Wall Street Journal to be a fifth major.
The Arena Football League over-expanded in the 2000s with a Minor League, and its importance (and number of teams) waned since it first experienced financial diffulties in 2009, and it ceased operations after the 2019 season due to the legacy debt incurred.
There is now, however, Indoor Football Leagues all over America, all of which would now be considered Minor League or Semi-Pro (AAA, AA, or even A)
Indoor Football is played on a 50-yard field with two 8-yard endzones, and teams have 5 downs (attempts) to reach the endzone or the ball is turned over. 3 of those downs must be passing plays, making Indoor Football highly explosive and high scoring.
The main difference between Arena Football & Indoor Football is the rebound nets either side of the goalposts in Arena Football, which is the only part of the original patent given to the Arena Football League in 1989, that a subsequent ruling in 1998 ruled was copyright, the rest being Football already in other leagues.
