The Louisiana Swashbucklers, a professional entertainment entity (main focus Indoor Football family entertainment) formed in 2005 as an expansion member of the National Indoor Football League (NIFL) as the Southwest Louisiana Swashbucklers. In 2006, they moved to the Intense Football League (IFL) and shortened their name to Louisiana Swashbucklers. They were originally set to play in the Indoor Football League due to the IFL's merger with United Indoor Football, but later had to bow out over geographic concerns. For their next three seasons, they were a member of the new Southern Indoor Football League. Then, in 2012 (under a public/private joint ownership venture), the entity joined newly the founded Professional Indoor Football League (PIFL). They played their home games at Sudduth Coliseum in Lake Charles, Louisiana. August, 2013 the organization reverted ownership back to city of Lake Charles due to movement of PIFL to Southeastern and Northeastern franchises. With three professional indoor football championships, the Louisiana Swashbucklers were a successful sports entertainment franchise in a small U.S. market for 9 years.
