Supreme Indoor Football was an Indoor American Football League, based primarily in the Carolinas, in the American South. It played one season. It could be considered a follow-on from the X-League Indoor Football (see: https://eirball.ie/2020/02/17/x-league-indoor-football-2014-2015/ ) and was replaced by the American Arena League. Cape Fear Heroes (Fayetteville, NC) were in all three leagues.
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.
