The Lehigh Valley Steelhawks were founded in 2011. They played in the Indoor Football League from 2011-2012, the Professional Indoor Football League from 2013-2015 and the American Indoor Football in 2016.
They will play their home games at the PPL Center in Allentown, PA. The Philadelphia Soul of the Arena Football League played their playoff games at the PPL Center last August en route to an ArenaBowl title.
The Steelhawks open their season against the Dayton Wolfpack on March 19. The Wolfpack had first reportedly folded. But then, rumor was that they would play all NAL teams, but all games will be on the road.
