Press release from the North Carolina Oilers:
The MFL, Minor Football League, has announced it will launch a minor-league football team in Western North Carolina. The North Carolina Oilers will be based out of Asheville, North Carolina. The MFL, based in Washington, D.C. and founded in 1993, serves the same function for the NFL as the minor-league system does for Major League Baseball.
The North Carolina Oilers will compete with 31 other teams across the nation for the league championship. Oilers players that make the roster will not be paid; however, they will receive uniforms, equipment, travel and lodging. They will also be featured to NFL and CFL Scouts.
The North Carolina Oilers will be holding combines for prospective players on April 29 in Charlotte, NC, and May 6 in Forest City, NC. They will also be holding a mini camp May 27 through May 29 to prepare for the June 2 kickoff game.
For any questions or further information regarding the North Carolina Oilers, please contact general manager Andy Slagle at 423-707-8973 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
