The Global Indoor League was a proposed indoor gridiron football league based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. It was founded by Mississauga resident David Parsons and wass set to begin play in Late 2017, but never came to fruition. The GIL was to have had a different indoor football field than the conventional American indoor field as it will be a 55-yard long field, half the size of a Canadian football field (a la the Canadian Football League). It will also be a 7-on-7 game as opposed to the 8-on-8 format preferred by most American indoor football leagues.
GIL would have been the first paying indoor football league to be primarily based in Canada. The Toronto Phantoms of the Arena Football League had previously played in Toronto in 2001 and 2002. A previous effort at a Canadian indoor football league, the North American Indoor Football League, folded before playing its first season in 2005. The amateur (and all-female) Legends Football League has had Canadian operations since 2011; Mississauga hosted the Toronto Triumph in 2012.
Plans were scrapped as of 2017 as David Parsons started the new Canadian Arena League.
