The SFL’s Dallas Stars relocated to Cleveland and was renamed the Vipers while the Grand Rapids Rollers were relocated to Minneapolis with a new owner (Thomas Paterniti) and a new name (Maulers) – the league remained an 8-team organization. The season’s popularity was boosted by the interest of Damon Grow, who was working on a Joe Montana Football game for Android and iOS systems. The league hit an all-time record for live viewership — 79 — towards the end of the regular season. The Minneapolis Maulers won the SFL Championship Game in their first year, 42-24 over the Orlando Intimidators. The game was played in Baltimore.
