The Louisiana Swashbucklers was a professional indoor football team 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 financial concerns. For their next three seasons, they were a member of the new Southern Indoor Football League. Now a member of the Professional Indoor Football League, they played their home games at Sudduth Coliseum in Lake Charles, Louisiana. On May 24, 2013, the team announced that they would be ceasing operations due to low ticket sales and cancelled the team's final home game. With three professional indoor championships, the Louisiana Swashbucklers are no longer existence, joining former fellow tenant, the Lake Charles Ice Pirates.
