The Bricktown Brawlers were a professional indoor football team based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. They were a member of the Lone Star Division of the Intense Conference in the Indoor Football League (IFL). The team was founded in 2010, an expansion member of the IFL. The Brawlers played their home games at Cox Convention Center.

Franchise history[edit]

On October 25, 2010, it was announced that Jay and Dale Morris had been awarded an expansion franchise in the Indoor Football League.[1] On November 4, 2010, the team announced that Steve Perdue would be their first-ever head coach, as well as a name-the-team contest.[2] On November 22, 2010, it was announced that the franchise would be named the Bricktown Brawlers.[3] On December 16, 2010, the Brawlers announced that former University of Oklahoma quarterback Jason White was coming aboard as a co-owner of the team.[4]

The Brawlers won their first game in franchise history on March 13, 2011, with a 29-20 victory over the Amarillo Venom.[5]

In Week 10 of the 2011 season the Bricktown Brawlers released most of their players, and the North Texas Crunch of the Independent Indoor Football Alliance was used as a replacement team to finish the schedule of the Brawlers.[6] The Brawlers officially folded at the conclusion of the season. They filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection on July 27, 2011.[7]
