Reading's former indoor football team, The Reading Express, has been stopped in its tracks.

The team's owners said they are giving up efforts to find a new owner.

The announcement comes one day after the Pennsylvania Steam announced plans to bring indoor football back to Reading.

The Express won a championship in 2009, then went dormant last year.

The Steam will play in the X-League at the Santander Arena.

The new team is owned by the same group that owns Reading's new indoor soccer team, The Pennsylvania Roar.
