The owner of the Oklahoma Roughnecks of the SFL is proud to announce the return of arena football to the city of Denver as the Denver Wings will play their inaugural season in The Arena League (TAL) for the league’s second season in early 2021.
The team is named in honor of the United States Air Force’s historical Strategic Air Command and its formidable Air Battle Wings in which several were based in Colorado. The team has chosen for its logo the noble eagle, a symbol of freedom and courage to many Americans. The Wings colors are orange, midnight blue, silver and white. Orange has a proud tradition in the Denver football region and represents strength and endurance. The blue and silver represent the Air Force and the white symbolizes the high elevation and cloudy skies as well as the mighty snow-capped mountains of Colorado.
Denver is known for its loyal and enthusiastic fans and this will mark the first return of arena football to Denver in 13 years. The AFL’s Denver Dynamite played in the city initially in 1987 and then from 1989-1990, winning the inaugural Arena Bowl in their first season. They were followed in 2003 by the hugely popular Colorado Crush who won an Arena Bowl championship in 2005 before the AFL shut down in 2008 effectively ending their existence.
The Wings will make their home at Ball Arena and hope to bring a fun and exciting experience and a competitive squad to a loyal fan base hungry for the return of arena football to its proud region.
The Arena League is the premiere arena/indoor league around the world with its second season to kick off in February 2021.
