The Wildcatters were the second indoor football team to call Odessa home, following the West Texas Roughnecks (originally the Odessa Roughnecks) which played in Intense Football League in 2004 and again from 2006 to 2008, the National Indoor Football League in 2005, the Indoor Football League from 2009 to 2011 and the LSFL from 2012 to 2013 before folding after they could not find a new owner.

After the 2014 season the Lone Star Football League merged with the Champions Professional Indoor Football League (CPIFL) to become the Champions Indoor Football (CIF). The Venom and Bandits became part of the new league while the Sol joined the X-League Indoor Football (XLIF), but the Wildcatters have made no announcement of which league they would join and are now considered defunct.
