Information

The Iowa Barnstormers are an Indoor Football League (IFL) team based in Des Moines, Iowa.

The original Barnstormers were an Arena Football League (AFL) expansion team that began play with the 1995 season at Veterans Auditorium. Following the 2000 season, the Barnstormers franchise was sold to the NHL New York Islanders ownership group, led by Charles Wang and Sanjay Kumar. Looking for a newer arena in a larger market, they moved Des Moines to Long Island, N.Y., as the renamed New York Dragons.
