The Southern Indoor Football League was a AA (3rd Level) Indoor American Football League, playing mainly in Texas & Louisiana, but also other Southern States and as far North as Pennsylvania (Erie & Harrisburg) and New York (Albany).
It merged with the Eastern teams from the American Indoor Football Association to form American Indoor Football after the 2011 season.
About 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.
