Originally announced as the Fort Worth Bulls but forced to change their name after the Birmingham Bulls objected, the team began play in the Western Professional Hockey League as the Fort Worth Brahmas while the CHL's Fort Worth Fire were still in operation. The Fire eventually ceased operations. The Fort Worth Brahmas played their home games at the Fort Worth Convention Center.
Due to problems negotiating a lease with the Fort Worth Convention Center, the Brahmas announced on May 3, 2006, that they would suspend operations for the 2006-07 season. However, they returned for the 2007-08 season as the Texas Brahmas. They play in the NYTEX Sports Centre (formerly known as the Blue Line Ice Complex) in North Richland Hills, Texas. NYTEX Sports is owned by former Brahmas minority owners, Sal and Frank Trazzera.
Their first season in North Richland Hills proved to be very successful as they entered the postseason for the first time since the 2001-02 season. In the first round the Brahmas defeated the Mississippi RiverKings then went on to sweep the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs in 4 games with David Cacciola in goal. In the Northern Conference Finals the Brahmas went to a game 7 with the defending champs, Colorado Eagles, before losing.
In 2008-2009, the Texas Brahmas won the Southeast Division and defeated the Odessa Jackalopes in 7 games to capture the Southern Conference Championship. The Texas Brahmas advanced to the Ray Miron President's Cup Finals to face the Colorado Eagles, whom they defeated 4 games to 1.
The 2008-2009 CHL Championship is the first by the Texas/Ft. Worth Brahmas Franchise and the first for the Fort Worth area since the Fort Worth Fire won the 1996-97 CHL Governor's Cup.
The Brahmas lost their playoff spot in the 2009-10 season in a close 2-1 fifth game against the Odessa Jackalopes.
The 2010-2011 season for the Brahmas ended on losing note in the 1st round of the playoffs against the Odessa Jackalopes in 4 games, 3 games to 1.
The team was sold to a Fort Worth-based investment group after the 2011–2012 season and returned to the Fort Worth Brahmas branding for the 2012–2013 season.
