The Iowa Thunder was a women's professional American football team based in Des Moines, Iowa. They played in the Women's Spring Football League.

During its first two seasons, the Thunder was a member of the Women's Football Alliance


In their Inaugural season, the Thunder became the first team in Iowa history to have a winning record at 5-3 and followed that up in 2010 with a 6-2 campaign that left them tied for 1st in the division (although they lost the tiebreaker to the Minnesota Machine based on head-to-head points total) and the first ever team to garner a playoff berth. The Thunder defeated the Machine 20-12 in the first round, but lost to the eventual WFA champion Lone Star Mustangs 30-20 in the conference semifinals.
