YOUR NEW PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM: FISHERS FREIGHT

FISHERS- There is officially a name for the brand new Indoor Football League team coming to the new Fishers Event Center in March 2025. The team publicly known for two months as “Indy Indoor Football” will go by the Fishers Freight.

The Freight nickname pays homage to the history of the team’s new home in Fishers. Formerly known as Fishers Station and originally as Fishers Switch back in 1872, the railroad industry has played a massive part in the history of Fishers. 

“The railroad is the reason the city even exists in the first place,” said Hamilton County historian David Heighway in an interview with the Indy Star in 2020.

The colors portray the same colors dawned by the Nickel Plate Road train that last rumbled through the streets of Indianapolis in 2015. The locomotive shown in the main logo is the original Nickel Plate Road train and the yellow lines hugging the train all-around are a main-stay throughout the overall Fishers Freight brand.

“We wanted to pay homage to the history behind the city we will be calling home,” said Team Owner Jim Hallett. “We’re very excited to be the Fishers Freight and can’t wait to begin play in the Fishers Event Center.”

"We’re thrilled to have the Fishers Freight representing this community and continuing to help build the new event center into a hub for sports and entertainment in our city. We look forward to bringing affordable family fun experiences to Fishers and I’m grateful for everyone who has worked tirelessly to make it happen.” Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness said.

You can sign up for tickets and purchase merchandise at fishersfreightfootball.com. The team is set to kick off in March of 2025 in the brand new Fishers Event Center.
