The United Arena League was founded in 2020 as a follow on from Supreme Indoor Football in the South of USA. It cancelled its inaugural season due to Coronavirus Pandemic concerns and is scheduled to start its first season on 8th May 2021, featuring three teams: Georgia-lina Lions, Peach State Cats and Palmetto Colts, with Inter-Conference play scheduled against Southern Steam of Eastern Indoor Football and Carolina Predators. Palmetto Colts are based in Palmetto, Florida; Georgia-lina Lions are based in Augusta, Georgia and Peach State Cats are based in Cumming, Georgia.

Peach State Cats opened the season with a 42-26 victory over Georgia-lina Lions. The following week they thrashed the Palmetto Colts 55-0.

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.
