The Bloomington Edge is a professional indoor football team which is a charter member of the Champions Professional Indoor Football League. Based in Bloomington, Illinois, the Edge plays its home games at the U.S. Cellular Coliseum.

Before joining the CPIFL, the franchise started as the Bloomington Extreme, playing three seasons in United Indoor Football from 2006 until 2008, when the UIF merged with the Intense Football League to form the Indoor Football League, in which they played from 2009 until 2012, the season in which they adopted their current name.

Franchise history[edit]

2006-2008[edit]

The Extreme started out as an expansion team in United Indoor Football in 2006. They missed the playoffs in their first season, but rebounded to get a franchise best record of 8-7 in 2007, when they fell to the Lexington Horsemen in the Eastern Conference championship. In 2008, they went 7-7, which was good enough for 1st place in a weak Eastern Conference. They won their first conference title and went on to the United Bowl where they would fall to the Sioux Falls Storm. The UIF merged with the Intense Football League in the 2008 offseason, meaning that the Extreme would compete in the new Indoor Football League in 2009.

2009[edit]

In 2009, former Florida State and NFL wide receiver Peter Warrick signed a one year contract with the Bloomington Extreme.

2012[edit]

Prior to the 2012 season, the team was purchased by Jim Morris, and the name changed to the current Bloomington Edge moniker.

2013[edit]

For the 2013 season, the Edge is now owned by Bloomington Blaze owner Sandra Hunnewell, and plays in the Champions Professional Indoor Football League.[1][2]

Logos and uniforms[edit]

From the team's inception until 2011, the team was known as the Bloomington Extreme, with the having been derived from a naming rights deal with local auto dealer Extreme Motors. In the 2011-12 offseason, the team was sold to Jim Morris (owner of a local Sonic Drive-In franchise and of the Premier Basketball League's Central Illinois Drive), with a naming rights deal with another auto dealer; this time Heller Ford would acquire said rights, giving the team its new Edge nickname (derived from the Ford Edge automobile).
