  • Dodge City, Ks: UNITED WIRELESS ARENA is excited to announce the Champions Professional Indoor Football League is bringing indoor Arena Football to Southwest Kansas. The, as- yet, un-named team will be playing all their home games at the United Wireless Arena beginning in 2014.
     
    The CPIFL will be entering its second season of play, and is one of several indoor football leagues throughout the United States bringing hard-hitting, fast-paced, “so close you can FEEL it” action to your hometown.
     Ricky Bertz, General Manager and Owner is one of the newest residents to call Dodge City his permanent home. However, Bertz is no stranger to the indoor football game having been a previous owner and general manager of the Fairbanks Grizzlies of the Indoor Football League (IFL). Bertz promises that in addition to bringing affordable, fast-paced, and exciting entertainment to Dodge City, having a team that is involved in the community will be one of the highest priorities of the organization. It is Bertz’s belief that the team in itself will become an extension of the community, and will represent the morals, characteristics, and qualities of Dodge City and the surrounding communities.
     
     In other news, Sean Ponder will be head coach during Dodge City’s inaugural season as they make their debut in the CPIFL. Coach Ponder expects the players to acknowledge how privileged they are to be where they are and expects them to help give back to the community that helps and supports the team. Coach Ponder has also been a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes for over 20 years.
