(Idaho Contact Football League)
The Idaho Contact Football League began in 1999 with 3 teams playing 8-man football at a local park in Boise, ID. The hemets didn’t match and players often dawned basketball shorts instead of football pants, and not everyone had cleats.
According to the ICFL website.
Since then they have grown to 11-man football, and has played across the state. Since 1999, the ICFL has been “A place where men can come together as a brotherhood to play the game we love.” It is a local league in Idaho that stretches from Eastern Oregon to Southern Idaho. The All-Star teams have traveled to Oregon and Utah. The ICFL is a development football league where people can play, get a chance to be recruited to colleges, or by Arena Football teams.
