The Ohio Glory played one season (1992) in the World League of American Football, which later became NFL Europe.

Columbus, Ohio was awarded the WLAF franchise after the Raleigh-Durham Skyhawks posted an 0-10 season. Ohio didn't do much better, posting a 1-9 record after one season of play. The sole win came at the expense of the Frankfurt Galaxy in week 7, a 20-17 victory in Columbus.

The Glory played their home games in Ohio Stadium on Ohio State University's campus, which at the time had a seating capacity of 91,470 (now 102,329). Their head coach was Larry Little, and they participated in the North American East division. Their first draft pick was former NFL quarterback Babe Laufenberg.
