CINCINNATI, OH – The UIFL has announced that Saturday's (May 12, 2012) game between Cincinnati Commandos and the Rome (Ga.) Rampage has been cancelled and will not be made up. The game will not count as a win or loss for either team, in the UIFL standings.
The two remaining regular season home games for the Commandos will take place as scheduled on Saturday, May 26 vs. the Erie Explosion and Saturday, June 2 vs. the Marion Blue Racers at the historic Cincinnati Gardens.
"Both the Commandos and Rome Rampage are disappointed the game will not be able to be played", said Jason Buckley, General Manager of the Cincinnati Commandos. "Fielding a competitive team and travel challenges made this a difficult endeavor for the Rampage. Both teams agreed it would not make sense, both competitively and financially, to play the game.
"We remain focused to finish out the regular season, including the two remaining home games and to play for a third straight indoor football championship for the Commandos and their fans," Buckley added.
In lieu of the game not being played, season ticket holders for the Cincinnati Commandos will have the option for either a refund or an exchange. The exchange can be good for a like seat, for either of the two remaining Commandos home games OR a potential home UIFL playoff game at the Cincinnati Gardens. For tickets purchased online, an automatic refund will take place to your account. For exchanges or refunds at the Cincinnati Gardens, please visit the box office during regular business hour; Monday – Friday, 10am – 5 pm.
