HistoryEdit

The franchise was founded in 2005 as the Cajun Catahoulas, based in Carencro, Louisiana.[3] For the 2008–09 season the team was relocated North Richland Hills, Texas and renamed the Texas Renegades. After one season in Texas, the team was moved to Rio Rancho, New Mexico and became the New Mexico Renegades. Prior to the 2011–12 season, the Renegades were purchased by Revolution Sports Management, Inc., which later moved the team to Springfield, Missouri.
