The Johnstown Jackals were a professional indoor American football team based in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. They were members of the original Indoor Football League founded in 1999 and began play in 2000. They competed in the Southern Division of the Eastern Conference and played their home games at the Cambria County War Memorial Arena.[1] They were the first of three teams that would play in Johnstown. The second were the Johnstown J-Dogs of the National Indoor Football League and the third (and most recent) were the Johnstown Riverhawks of the American Indoor Football Association (formerly the Topeka Knights/Kings of the IFL).

History[edit | edit source]

The Jackals were founded as an expansion team in 1999 and joined the original incarnation of the Indoor Football League along with several others expansion franchises. The team played in the Eastern Conference South.[2] In the only season in the IFL, the team compiled a 3–13 record finishing in fourth place in the Eastern Conference. After the IFL was bought out by af2, the Flames were not among the many teams that moved to the new league and subsequently folded.[3][4]

The Jackals folded after the 2000 season after the league was purchased by the Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League. One year later, a new expansion team joined the newly formed National Indoor Football League and were named the Johnstown J-Dogs, but quickly folded after the 2002 season.
