The Flint Phantoms are a team in the Continental Indoor Football League, first playing in the 2008 season. They play their home games at the Perani Arena and Event Centermarker, which was previously home to the Indoor Football League's Flint Flames in 2000, and the playoff home for the defunct Michigan Pirates in 2007.

History

With the limited success of Perani Arena as the playoff home for the Michigan Pirates, Pete Norager, one of the owners of the Pirates, decided to start a replacement team in Flint, and the formation of the Phantoms was announced on December 18, 2007. In February 2008, Norager withdrew from owning the team. Currently, the Perani Group is running the team pending the selection of a new owner with a temporary investment group. Because of poor attendance, payments to players were delayed near the end of the 2008 season, and some players left the team because of other commitments or disgruntlement over late pay. The Phantoms approached their last game of 2008 with a roster of just 9 or 10 and looked to semi-pro teams for additional players. On the day of the game, only 11 players were available (with 16 required to field a team), forcing the Phantoms to forfeit.

The team is sitting out the 2009 season but still is considered a CIFL team.
