At a press conference held at Ace on the Lake hardware store in Bemidji earlier today, the owners of Bemidji's new Indoor Football Leage team revealed the team's name and logo.
Standing in front of a collection of the hardware store's axes, Chris Kokalis, the team's co-owner and president revealed the logo. "This process, selecting the name has been tremendous," he said. "We received over 1,200 entries."
The Axemen will be Bemidji's first-ever professional sports franchise. The IFL schedule will be released next month and the team is set to begin playing in 2014.
