WENATCHEE, Wash. — A new indoor football team plans to play in Wenatchee’s Town Toyota Center beginning next spring.

Team co-owner and general manager Mark Helm on Monday announced the Wenatchee Valley Venom as the newest member of the American Indoor Football Association. The Wenatchee World reports that the team signed a franchise agreement with the AIFA on Sunday night.

The league has 14 teams. Players will receive about $250 per game, plus a bonus of about $50 if the team wins. An annual operating budget should be about $300,000 to $400,000 plus startup costs for the first year.

Wenatchee will play in a division that includes teams in Utah, New Mexico and Wyoming.
