Idaho Horseman sign contract with Ford Idaho Center & announce the schedule

(For Immediate Release)

Nampa, Idaho January 22, 2019--The Idaho Horsemen Football Organization - Platinum Events & Security LLC is pleased to announce the kick-off of the team’s inaugural season, with the finalizing of a contract with the Ford Idaho Center in Nampa on January 4.

“We believe that professional indoor football is needed in the Treasure Valley. Better still, the community has shown the team is wanted—as ticket sales have been growing strong since February 2018,” says Chris Reynolds, team owner.

The Idaho Horsemen is brought to you by Platinum Events & Security, LLC. Co-owners Chris & Angelina Reynolds envisioned the team as a way to bring affordable, family-friendly entertainment to the Treasure Valley. The couple also sees the Horsemen as a platform for athletes to continue their career while trying to reach the next level of professional sports. In addition, local dancers have an opportunity to showcase their skills through the Lady Spurs dance team.

The team will play a 12-game schedule, with six home games. The home schedule:

March 23 versus Wenatchee Valley Skyhawks

April 7 versus Sacramento Spartans

April 26 versus Reno Express

May 11 versus Tri-Cities Fire

May 30 versus Sacramento Spartans

June 15 versus Wenatchee valley Skyhawks

Season Tickets are currently on sale now and Individual Game tickets will go on sale February 15, with tickets starting at just $12.

The Players

The Horsemen conducted tryouts in the fall, and the team has

signed 29 players. Players must report to camp by February 23rd.

“We are still looking to plug in more key positions to solidify our initial

roster,” Chris Reynolds says.

While the Horsemen have many local players on the roster, players are also

coming from out-of-state.

“Our Host Family Program was put together to help these guys get settled in

local homes—and we’d love to see the community welcome them, “says

Angelina Reynolds. “Host Families will receive season tickets and other

benefits—so check out our website for more information.”

We are also interested in finding local businesses that can provide part time

jobs for the out of state players to help supplement their income. It is

important for us to provide the best possible experience for the players while

here in the valley.

The Horsemen are currently offering an exclusive ticket package to the first

1000 fans to kick off the season—with discounts up to 75%. Close to 40
