Wranglers to Build Stadium in OKC
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK-- Every team needs a place to call home, and on Friday, the Oklahoma City Wranglers announced their new home. The Wranglers have agreed on a 20-year agreement to develop a 10,000-seat stadium at Crossroads Mall in Oklahoma City. With the announcement, the Wranglers will bring professional football back to Oklahoma's largest city.
Once the crown jewel of the Oklahoma City shopping experience, the Crossroads Mall is undergoing redevelopment. Like many shopping centers throughout the country, the Crossroads Mall is reimaging the shopping experience by combining shopping, housing, education, and live events. With Friday's announcement, the shopping center has added to its growing list of tenants. Bringing a major professional football league in the United Football League and the Oklahoma City Wranglers to the Sooner State for the first time.
Professional spring football teams have called Oklahoma City home in the past. In the early 2000s, the Oklahoma Wranglers competed in Arena Football League for two seasons, followed by the Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz, that competed in the city for five seasons. But those franchises played indoors in the tight and congested confines of arena football in a sport that quite frankly does not resemble real football. In the new Wranglers, outdoor professional football will be in Oklahoma City for the first time. In a state with storied college football programs such as the Oklahoma Sooners and the Oklahoma State Cowboys, football fans are looking for a spring football experience that feels like real football. In the Wranglers, fans are getting their wish and a franchise ready to make a long-term commitment to Oklahoma City and the state of Oklahoma.
It takes a significant investment from players, staff, coaches, and fans to have a successful professional sports club with one group more important than all the others, the fans. With Friday's announcement, the Wranglers are eager to build a long-term relationship with its most important group and ready to reach success both on and off the playing surface.
Player signings and coaching announcements will be made throughout the coming weeks, with the Wranglers looking to add up to 36 players to their 2023 Training Camp roster.
