The Reno Barons are a professional indoor football team that began play in spring 2011. Based in Reno, Nevada, the Barons play their home games at the Reno Events Center.

Their name seems to be a play on Manfred von Richthofen (the World War I pilot colloquially known as The Red Baron), and a reference to the Reno Air Races in the nearby Reno Stead Airport (the Stead Air Force Base-decommissioned in the 1990s).

Originally set to join the American Indoor Football Association in 2011, the AIFA lost too many teams to field a league that year, prompting two of the remaining three teams-- Reno and the Stockton Wolves-- to defect from the league, ensuring its demise. Reno and Stockton are playing a schedule comprising independent teams and each other, under the name "Western Indoor Football Association."
