In the light of the announcement of 13 July 2020, that the Washington Redskins are to retire their Nickname and Logo, Eirball takes a break from the past to have a brief look at what the future holds. What about expansion around the World or the Arena / Indoor Football Leagues?
Eirball would like the Indoor Football League to make the step up to Major League level, and establish an IFL Global Conference, with teams in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, North England, Brittany, Basque Country and Galicia. The Belfast Blitzers and Dublin Celts have been resurrected for this league.
The Arena Football League is resurrected with a Spring Conference and Fall Conference as a rival to the IFL.
