The California Eagles were a professional indoor football team based in Stockton, California. The team was a member of the Western Conference of American Indoor Football (AIF) during the 2012 season. The Eagles played their home games at the Stockton Arena.

History[edit]

The Eagles became an expansion member of the re-branded American Indoor Football for the 2012 season. The Eagles were brought in by owner Dan Whited. The Eagles began the season 3-2, when the team suspended operations due to Whited failing to meet financial obligations.[1][2] However, the Western Conference champion, Ontario Warriors, were suspended by the AIF, and the Eagles were thrown into the AIF Championship Game to play the Eastern Conference champions, the Cape Fear Heroes.[1] The Eagles were defeated by the Heroes, 79-27.[3]
