Iowa Barnstormers make the move from the AFL to IFL

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

In a move that can be considered strange at best, the Iowa Barnstormers completed a move that takes the franchise from the Arena Football League to the lower-tiered Indoor Football League, which includes the Cedar Rapids Titans.

The Barnstormers made the announcement Wednesday. Team president Jeff Lamberti says the economic aspects of the IFL are more fitting for the Des Moines-based franchise, which is among the smallest markets in the AFL.

The Barnstormers were in the Arena Football League from 1995 to 2000 and rejoined the league in 2010.
