}} The '''Hawaiʻi Football League''', (HFL) or (HIFL), was a semi-pro football league that operated in [[Hawaiʻi]] from 1994 to 2005. Teams were located on the Hawaiian islands of [[Hawaii (island)|Hawaiʻi]], [[Maui]], and [[Oahu]]. ==History==
{{Expand-section|date=June 2008}}
The HFL was founded in 1993. It was a league of semi-pro teams scattered thoughout the Islands. The fact the league existed for over 10 years is both a tribute to the players and management and to the football loving locals who supported their efforts. Thus far, The HFL is the only semi-pro football league to ever have existed in the Islands. All teams folded and the league ceased operations in 2005. There is no current explanation as to why the league folded, nor is there any information as to whether the HFL or some other semi-pro football will some day return to the Islands. Former President Danny Crowell is said to be living on the [[Hawaii (island)|Big Island]] and Former Vice President Darren Atkins is said to have moved to [[Colorado]]. ==Adminastration==
