In Dallas, TX we have several sports teams. We have the Dallas Cowboys football team, Dallas Stars hockey team, and the Dallas Mavericks Basketball team. After a 28 year hiatus Dallas can now brag that it has an Indoor Football team. Dallas has not experienced indoor football since 1990. There are not many cities that can proudly say that we host almost every sport that true fans would like to see. I guess it is safe to say that we are a big sport team’s city.
The Dallas Cowboys which is also known as “America’s Team” was established as an expansion team in 1960. They compete in the National Football League. The have made 8 super bowl appearances and have won the title 5 times. The Dallas Cowboys are the only NFL team that has had 20 straight winning seasons from 1966-1985. They have only missed the playoffs twice, 1974 and 1984.
The Dallas Stars Hockey team was founded during the 1967 National Hockey League Expansion. They initially were the Minnesota North Stars, based in Bloomington, Minnesota. After many different changes they relocated to Dallas for the 1993-1994 NHL season. They have won the prestigious Stanley Cup once during the 1998-99 season. They share the American Airlines Center with Dallas Mavericks.
Let’s take a closer look at the pro sports teams in Dallas, TX. First of all the Dallas Mavericks. The Dallas Mavericks also known as “The Mavs” were established in 1980. They are in the National Basketball League’s Western Conference Southwest Division. The Dallas Mavericks have only won one national championship title, which was back in 2011.
Now there is a new team that will be joining the ranks of the other pro teams here in Dallas. The Dallas Marshalls have arrived. Indoor Football has not been played in Dallas for 28 years. The team will be the first football team to actually play in Dallas. All games will be played in the historic Fair Park Coliseum in South Dallas. Now unlike the National Football League indoor football rules are slightly different.Before we elaborate on the rules it is very important to know that tickets for the Dallas Marshalls football games will be just a fraction of the cost of a NFL game. In indoor football there are 8 men from each team on the field. The field that they play on is just 50 yards in length instead of the traditional 100 yards. There is no punting in indoor football. The perspective team has no choice but to go for it every time on fourth down. Sports fans in Dallas are going to love the fact that indoor football players are very accessible to them after the games are over. They are given an opportunity to take pictures and get autographs signed by their favorite players. The indoor football season typically begins in mid to late winter and ends by mid-summer. Although indoor football is not heavily televised as the NFL, yet that does not minimize the excitement of the game. The Dallas Marshalls first home game will take place on February 17, 2018 against the DFW Snipers.
