The Lone Star Football League (LSFL) is a regional professional indoor football league set to begin its inaugural season in 2012. All nine of the LSFL's charter teams are based in the state of Texas, with five teams coming from the Southern Indoor Football League, three from the Indoor Football League, and one new expansion team. The current Commissioner is Darlene Jones.

For 2013, the LSFL is adding two new teams; the expansion San Angelo Bandits and the New Mexico Stars (formerly of the Indoor Football League and the LSFL's first and only team outside of Texas).[1] The league announced in October that the Corpus Christi Hammerheads had been removed from the league due to its ownership violating by-laws.


All teams are based in Texas unless otherwise noted.
