The Springfield Stallions were an indoor football team that played their home games in Springfield Illinois. They were a 2007 expansion member of the Continental Indoor Football League.

The Stallions played their home football games at the Prairie Capital Convention Center which is located in downtown Springfield. It has a seating capacity of 6,500 for football games.

On October 17, the team announced they were going to play in the Continental Indoor Football League.[1]

This was the inaugural season for the Stallions at the professional level. There had previously been a semi-pro team in Springfield called the Stallions in 2006 which played for the 8FL. While the current Stallions ownership maintained the rights to the original franchise (and maintained a few players from the semi-pro team) the current Stallions' history was not considered a continuation of the original team's.

The Stallions one season in the CIFL ended with a few weeks remaining in the season. The owner of the team, Justin Gettys disappeared three weeks into the season leaving management and the coaching staff to try and scrape together a team for the remainder of the season.

Following a teleconference involving remaining management and the league office, the team ended operations before the conclusion of the 2007 season.
