Women’s football returns to Dallas

North Texas Knockouts Women's Professional Football

Women's pro football gets a new team

The North Texas Knockouts are a professional women’s football team in the Independent Women’s Football League (IWFL), replace the Dallas Diamonds, who have left the IWFL and returned to the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA).

The North Texas Knockouts are a new team organized to provide women in the Dallas/Fort Worth area the opportunity to play tackle football at the national level. The team is owned by Frisco resident Lacresia Webster-Gay and will be managed by Ms. Garrett. As an active member of several community organizations Ms. Gay brings a passion for grass roots activism and love for football to this new team.
“We are very excited about this new team. The commitment to integrity and solid business practices shown by this ownership group is truly refreshing. They will definitely create success for themselves on and off the field,” stated Kezia Disney, IWFL Chief Operating Officer.
The Independent Women’s Football League (IWFL), a 501(c)(6) non-profit Texas Corporation, is a full tackle women’s football league focused on creating a positive, safe and fun environment for the women who play the game and fans that come out to watch them. The IWFL was founded in 2000 by a group of women dedicated to making the sport a household name. The IWFL currently has over 1600 women playing the sport for 51 teams across North America from Southern California to Montreal and Washington to Florida with consistent expansion into to new markets.
