The Frisco Thunder was an indoor football team in Frisco, Texas. They were a member of the Intense Football League and played their home games at the Dr Pepper Arena.

The Thunder began play in the Intense Football League. As an expansion team, they made the playoffs and finished with a record of 8-6. Their second season was more disappointing, which ended with a 6-8 record and a first round playoff loss to the Odessa Roughnecks. The team also had the distinction of playing the first half of the 2008 season at home, and the remaining 7 games consecutively on the road due to construction on their home arena.

The team was owned by former Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints Jake Reed, who purchased the team during the 2007 season. The team ceased operations after the 2008 season.
