The Lone Star Brahmas are a team of the North American Hockey League set to begin play for the 2013-14 season. Based in North Richland Hills, Texas (a suburb of Fort Worth), the Brahmas will play their home games at the NYTEX Sports Centre.
The Brahmas nickname is in tribute to the Fort Worth Brahmas of the Central Hockey League, which played their final six seasons (most notably winning the 2009 Ray Miron President's Cup championship) at the NYTEX Sports Centre. Despite the same ownership, this team is not considered a continuation of that Brahmas' franchise.
The franchise was previously known as the Texas Tornado; having started up in 1999 playing at the NYTEX Sports Centre, the Tornado moved to Frisco and the Dr Pepper Arena in 2003 (after which the Lone Star Cavalry took their place, playing in the NAHL for one season). The Tornado won five Robertson Cups; in 2001, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2012.
However, the on-ice success could not cure the Tornado's off-ice financial woes nor the money they lost over the past three years. After seeking out all options to remain in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, the Tornado sold the team to Texas Hockey Partners, who moved the team to NYTEX and gave them their current Brahmas name.
