Idaho Revealed as the Next NAL Franchise to Join in 2024

Idaho Horsemen Becomes the Fifth Additional Team to Join the NAL in 2024

ATLANTA, GA – The National Arena League officially reveals Nampa, Idaho as the newest franchise to join the National Arena League for the upcoming 2024 season, which continues the national growth and footprint of the league. The Horsemen become the fifth recent city to join the National Arena League and the first team in Idaho to play in the National Arena League.

In 2024, the Horsemen will host their home games at the Ford Idaho Center as the franchise enters its fifth season, launching their first season in 2018. The two-time AWFC league champions will be led by a familiar face, team owner Chris Reynolds.

“Today’s announcement of the Horsemen joining the National Arena League is truly a process that has taken several years for our organization to bring to fruition” stated  Horsemen owner Chris Reynolds. “When we had the vision of bringing professional football back to the state of Idaho when we started this in 2018, it was with the goal of associating ourselves with a league like the NAL. Through the years as we have continued to grow, we finally came to the point in time that we could officially make this change. Our fans are going to be exposed to new teams, new talent levels and entertainment that will be unparalleled in our community. Horsemen fans and partners, it’s time to Posse Up, because 2024 is going to be the beginning of a whole new chapter in our franchises history”.  

The Horsemen  join the Sioux City Bandits, Omaha Beef, Carolina Cobras, Topeka Tropics and Colorado Spartans as current NAL members, with future team announcements coming in the following weeks.

“The work that Chris and the entire Idaho Horsemen staff has executed over the past several years has always been something that I have personally admired for a few years” Stated National Arena League Executive Director Ricky Bertz. “Partners such as Chris are exactly what we are looking for as we continue to grow the National Arena League. While travel distance and the costs associated with them are always a factor when making these decisions, having playing partners that meet or exceed the standards of the league always has an indirect value, and the Horsemen epitomize what we are looking for as a league. The entire NAL board of directors is overjoyed with today's announcement”.
