BEMIDJI - The Indoor Football League is considering adding a team in Bemidji.

But for that to happen, an investor or investors would need to finance the expansion. To that end, IFL officials will hold a press conference Thursday to make that need known, according to a press release issued Monday.


The press conference will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday at the Sanford Center, where the team would play seven games from February to June.

The league, owned and operated by the teams' owners, was formed in 2008 and includes nine teams, including the Green Bay Blizzard and the Chicago Slaughter.
