About the IFL
The Ironman Football League was created by Chris Chudada of Pewaukee, Wisconsin in 1996 with the idea of forming and maintaining a thriving and profitable semi-pro football league that will continue to advance and be successful for a long, long time.
One of the leagues objectives is to give young adults the opportunity to play organized competitive football in a professional atmosphere. The other objective is to foster the development and maintenance of an efficient and professional organization of competitive and entertaining adult American football on a semipro level. The IFL is committed to league advancements and developing relationships with fans, local businesses, sponsors, cable providers, equipment suppliers, players and kids. The Ironman Football League currently has the finest playing facilities of all the semi-professional leagues in Wisconsin and the Midwest. The IFL has a definite advantage over its competitors when it comes to providing longevity, quality stadium facilities and a respectable reputation amongst its peers. As a result, we will always be one or two steps ahead of our competition and continue to be the best fit for any new future franchise or players of a certain caliber that is serious about football and being the best.
IFL Regular Season
The Ironman Football League (IFL) season is played during the summer and begins the weekend of May 22nd. The summer format does not compete with NFL and College football. Each team plays 10 games during an 11-week period. Traditionally, the majority of each week's games are played on Saturday afternoon.
The Ironman Football League (IFL) playoffs are a single-elimination tournament held at the end of the 10-game regular season to determine the IFL champion. Four teams from each of the league's two conferences qualify for the playoffs based on regular season records, and a tie-breaking procedure exists in the case of equal records. It ends with the Ironbowl, the league's championship game, which matches the two conference champions.
The Ironbowl is the championship game of the Ironman Football League (IFL). The game is held at a select site chosen by the league administrative board before the season starts and is played between the National & American conference champions to determine one ultimate league champion. The Ironbowl was first played back on November 16, 1997 where the Portage Hitmen defeated the Pewaukee Warhawks to become the first ever Ironbowl Champions.
IFL In the Community
The Ironman Football League is committed to giving back to the community. Whether it is helping the community’s youth for the future or simply lending a helping hand to the elderly, the IFL is glad to give back to its many supporting communities. While the leagues main purpose is to provide an outlet for players and fans to enjoy football at a high level in a professional atmosphere, the league also acknowledges that its players, staff and the teams themselves have an obligation to give back to their communities while presenting a positive attitude and a helping hand to others less fortunate.
IFL Hall of Fame
The Ironman Football League Hall of Fame is the hall of fame of the Ironman Football League (IFL). It was created in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, on January 6, 2003. The following year the hall welcomed its first selections with 3 charter inductees. The purpose for the Hall of Fame is to honor the great players, coaches and individuals of the IFL that has made a lasting impression on us through their leadership, talent, commitment and passion for the game of football. Great players and individuals of the game don't fade away just because their careers are over, the IFL Hall of Fame will forever preserve their greatness through football immortality.
