The Cincinnati Jungle Kats were an af2 team that played its home games at the U.S. Bank Arena. Their only year in existence was 2007. The team is not to be confused with the The Marshals (formerly the Cincinnati Marshals), the NIFL club that was the arena's former tenant, who changed their name to "The Marshals" and moved to Hara Arena in nearby Dayton, Ohio for the 2007 season.

The team name was in reference to the city's NFL team, the Cincinnati Bengals and a tribute to the Cincinnati Zoo's tiger conservation efforts. Former Bengals defensive tackle Sam Adams, Cincinnati Reds right fielder Ken Griffey, Jr., and Cincinnati Reds medical director Dr. Timothy Kremchek were the principal owners.

Tony Missick was the team's only head coach. The rest of the coaching staff included Ron Hill, Daniel James, Matt Braun, and Lamont Watson.

The team dissolved in November 2007 after completing one season.
