Richmond Revolution

 The Richmond Revolution was a professional indoor football team based in Richmond, Virginia that began playing in the Indoor Football League in the 2010 season. For the 2010 season they played their home games at the Arthur Ashe Athletic Center. Because of space issues at that facility the owner decided to move onto the SportsQuest campus in nearby Chesterfield for the 2011 season and play all home games outdoors, since the proposed arena had not yet been built.

However in late August Richmond BizSense's writer Aaron Kremer reported that Charlie Hildbold, the general manager, was laid off. He had moved to Virginia to help launch the indoor arena football team. According to Steve Burton, the owner of the team, Richmond Revolution will sit out the 2012 season and be reinstated in 2013. Scott Bass a writer for Style Weekly reported nearly half of the 40 players on the Raiders' training camp roster for 2011 defected from Richmond Revolution, as well as the Revolution's head coach, Steve Criswell. On February 9, 2012 the Virginia attorney general's office filed a civil suit against SportsQuest, the company that owns the Revolution.

This is Richmond's third attempt at trying to build a long lasting Indoor Pro football team. The demise of Richmond Revolution leaves the Raiders the only team in the area. Previous teams were the Speed of the Af2 and the Bandits of the AIFL.
