The Illinois Renegades are an indoor football team based out of the Chicago area. They are members of the Midwest Professional Indoor Football League (MPIF), which will enter its fourth season in 2019. The Renegades won the MPIF's inaugural championship in 2016.
They took a season off to re-brand and look to play again in 2019 and an announcement on their league affiliation is expected to be forthcoming.
The Midway Marauders won the MPIF championship in 2017, while the West Michigan Ironmen won it this season. The Ironmen, like the Edge, were slated to join the Indoor Football League prior to 2018, but the teams were forced to table those plans due to a legal challenge filed by their former league, Champions Indoor Football.
This roster was provided to SCtoC by Renegades general manager Gread D. McGinnis III. Numbers are not included as they were changing during the days leading up to the game.
