NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A new indoor football team is coming to Nashville next year.

The Professional Indoor Football League announced Tuesday that the Nashville Venom will become the eighth and final member for the upcoming 2014 season.

The team will play at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium beginning with their home opener on April 5.

"We are excited about the opportunity to host the Professional Indoor Football League's Nashville Venom in 2014," said Nashville Municipal Auditorium General Manager Bob Skoney in a press release.

"PIFL is a great addition to the Auditorium's event roster and further expands the sports options available for Nashville and Middle Tennessee sports enthusiasts," continued Skoney. "In preparation for all of our 2014 events, we are refurbishing the mezzanine seating."

The Venom's rivals are set to be the Alabama Hammers, as well as with the Columbus Lions (GA) and Albany Panthers (GA).

Their inaugural game will be March 22 against the Albany Panthers.

Nashville has not had an indoor football team since 2007.
