The CIF returns to Mesquite Texas for the 2023 season

At the beautiful Hampton hotel and Convention Center, officials from South Dakota, Pick-Six Entertainment, LLC announced today their plans to launch a new professional indoor football team in Mesquite for the 2023 season. The yet-to-be-named team will be involving local business leaders and will play at the Mesquite Rodeo Arena beginning in March of next year. The group announced not only their arrival; but, also plans to hire a local staff, involve local business leaders, and even have the community name the team through a contest in partnership with G Signs and Graphics of Mesquite.

“We spent time considering several cities but knew almost as soon as we arrived that Mesquite was where we wanted to start our Texas expansion,” explained team managing partner Keith Russ. He started Pick-Six over a year ago launching the Wyoming Mustangs, a professional football team playing in Gillette, Wyoming this past season (2021) in front of sell-out crowds each game. “We have been treated with such great hospitality from Colin Moore at the arena to business leaders such as Karla Jacobs with the Hampton, the staff at the Convention and Visitors Bureau, and beyond. We will do our best to make certain that we provide something very special to this community.”

“The CIF is happy to accept Mesquite as our 9th market. Texas is a key part of the league’s growth and we look forward to working with their experienced ownership to give this market great indoor football in 2023.” -CIF Board of Directors.

Proud members of the CIF (Champions Indoor Football), the Mesquite team will compete with opponents from all over the upper-midwest down through Texas in a 12-game season (6 home games) starting in March of 2023. Games are fast-paced, high-scoring, and surrounded by family-oriented entertainment from a tailgate party throughout the game and even into the post-game autograph session and activities. The team provided a tentative timeline on when the fans and the community can expect to meet a new president, and head coach, see a team name and logo, and be able to buy tickets over the coming months.
