The Fighters were founded in 2019 as an expansion team for the IFL by Columbus, Ohio, businessman Steve Germain, who later also announced a second team, the Columbus Wild Dogs. They named Texas-native, former Arena Football League quarterback, and head coach Clint Dolezel as their first head coach and director of football operations. Dolezel won ArenaBowl championships in 1999 as quarterback of the Grand Rapids Rampage and three more titles as a head coach, two with the Philadelphia Soul in the AFL and one with the Beijing Lions of the China Arena Football League. Former AFL coach Dave Ewart was named as an assistant head coach and director of player personnel and former AFL quarterback Dan Raudabaugh as an assistant coach.  The team was named the Frisco Fighters in December 2019 due to the city's ties to the aviation industry.
They were scheduled to play their inaugural season in 2020, but the entire IFL season was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic before they played a game.
