The Milwaukee Mustangs are a professional arena football team based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They are members of the Arena Football League (AFL), which they joined in 2010 during the league's restructuring. They play their home games at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in downtown Milwaukee.
The team began play in 2009 as the Milwaukee Iron, and competed in af2, the AFL's developmental league. They joined the AFL after the league's restructuring in 2010. On January 27, 2011, the team officially changed its name to the Mustangs, after an older team that had played in the AFL from 1994 to 2001. Their current head coach is Bob Landsee. The Mustangs are dormant for the 2013 season.
The Milwaukee Iron were announced as an af2 expansion team in March 2008 when the team's ownership group announced a three-year lease agreement to play at the Bradley Center beginning with the 2009 season. The announcement came the day before the Milwaukee Bonecrushers kicked off play in the Continental Indoor Football League at Milwaukee's US Cellular Arena.
Milwaukee had been without an arena football team since the Milwaukee Mustangs of the Arena Football League folded in 2001 after not being allowed to play at the Bradley Center.
The Iron played its first game on Thursday, March 12, 2009, a 60-0 exhibition shutout of the New Zealand Overstayers at the Bradley Center. They opened the regular season on Friday, March 27, 2009 when they played host to the Iowa Barnstormers. The Iron lost 60-38.
The Iron entered the Arena Football League in 2010. The team finished the year 11-5 and won the Midwest Division.
