The Allen Wranglers are a professional indoor football team based in Allen, Texas scheduled to begin play in 2011 in the Indoor Football League. The Wranglers will play their home games at the Allen Event Center.[1]

HistoryEdit

The Wranglers began play as the Arkansas Twisters and was a planned charter member of Arena Football 1 (and before that a charter member of af2), and played their home games at Verizon Arena.

On November 17th, the team left Arena Football 1 to join the Indoor Football League. Due to a complicated legal process, the team had to change its name. On February 4, 2010, they announced that Arkansas Diamonds won the fan vote.

The Diamonds have since left Arkansas and are moving to Allen, Texas, for the 2011 IFL season.[2] After a name-the-team contest, the team announced on September 29 it would be called the Allen Wranglers.[1]

On November 5, 2010, the team announced that Chris MacKeown would be the Wranglers' head coach for the 2011 season. MacKeown was most recently the offensive coordinator for the Arena Football League's Colorado Crush after a stint as head coach and director of football operations for the Amarillo Dusters of af2.[3]
