Iowa Barnstormers

The Arena Football League awarded Des Moines its first arena football franchise in 1995, which originally played in Veterans Memorial Auditorium. The Barnstormers made the playoffs in their first season and advanced to two Arenabowl Championship games, first in 1996 and again in 1997, falling both times.

The team was sold in 2000 and the following season became an affiliate of the af2. The next year they ceased operations. After a 7-year void, the Barnstormers returned to Wells Fargo Arena as an af2 team before joining the league once again in 2010.

In 2015 the Barnstormers left the af2 and joined the Indoor Football League.  In 2018, head coach Dixie Wooten led the Barnstormers to their first ever championship over the Sioux Falls Storm in the United Bowl.
