FARGO, N.D. (KFGO-AM) -- The Fargo Freeze once had a stint in the old indoor Football League for one year in 2000. Now the city of Fargo is a hot candidate to have a team in the new Indoor Football League (IFL). Back in 2000 the Freeze played in the Fargodome but the new proposal is for the unnamed new team to play in Scheels Arena. The arena has said they would be on board with the idea as long as the team has the right ownership. Scheels Arena has housed the Fargo Force for the past five seasons and proved to be a top notch venue. If the proposal goes through, the target is for the expansion team to start in the 2014 season. Chris Kokalis, a representative of the Indoor Football League, said it would take around $75,000 to $150,000 to fund a team. The next step in this process, therefore, is to find an owner or ownership group. That step may already be on it's way as Kokalis says they have already received interest from a few groups to start a new team in this area, though nothing is concrete as of now. If all of the pieces fall into place, Fargo could become home to an exciting brand of football, again.
