• Indoor football coming … and going

    Less than 24 hours after the introduction of Reading’s new indoor football team, the city’s former team has ceased operations. The owners of the Reading Express announced Tuesday that they team is discontinuing operations indefinitely, a little more than a year after the team played its last game. The Express spent 7 seasons in the AIFL, AIFA, and IFL, winning an AIFA Championship in 2009. The team has no affiliation with the brand new PA Steam of the X-League. The Steam, formally introduced at a Monday press conference, will begin play in the spring at the soon-to-be-renamed Santander Center.
