The NEFL is happy to Welcome Back the River City Rough Riders!
Based in La Crosse WI, the Rough Riders have been around since 2003 with Dan Bridges taking over operations in 2009. River City first joined the Northern Elite Football League in 2011 and quickly became a threat making a couple Semi-Final appearances before departing after the 2018 season. After two seasons away, River City is finding their way back to the competitive NEFL.
As the NEFL looks to continue expansion, team presentations will happen every month until the end of the year.
League President Matt Petznick says, "We're not targeting a specific amount of teams. Since 2008, the NEFL has proven to be one of the Top Leagues in the country so we're simply looking to attract top talented teams that like to compete." The league encourages established teams in MN, WI, ND, SD, IA, NE, MO, IL to apply.
