In the summer of 1994, a new RHI franchise was born, th Atlanta fire Ants. Billed as a summer alternative to ice hockey, the team played eleven games in the air conditioned Omni Coliseum from June to August. The team was coached by John Paris, Jr. and featured two players from the IHL Atlanta Knights: team captain Jeff Madill and Devin Edgerton. Averaging 3,388 fans per game, the Fire Ants outdrew franchises in Calgary, Chicago, Edmonton, Florida, New England, Las Vegas, Portland and San Diego. The team even went 10-10-2 and made the playoffs but were swept in the first round. With lower than expected attendance and the uncertainty of whether the team would have a place to play after Atlanta was awarded the 1996 Summer Olympic Games, the franchise was sold and moved to Oklahoma City for the 1995 season.
