Ricky Bertz is no stranger to the Champions Indoor Football League as he was one of the people personally responsible for helping create the league by assisting in facilitating the merger between the Lone Star Football League and the Champions Professional Indoor Football League in 2014.
During the 2015 season, Ricky Bertz served as the CIF league commissioner after Darlene Jones stepped down due to health concerns. Ricky, as well as his past organizations, have won several CIF league awards including Franchise of the Year, Executive of the Year, and Game Operations of the year to name a few.
Being a sportsman at heart, Ricky is very passionate about indoor football and considers many people within the league and industry to be close personal friends. Moving forward, he is excited to once again be a part of the CIF, and help guide the league along with its playing partners, for the 2017 season.
