Jacksonville Dixie Blues
The Jacksonville Dixie Blues are a professional women’s tackle football team, playing NFL style football. They began their journey over 15 years ago and have won more games than any other organized football team in Jacksonville, sporting an overall record of 123-15. The Blues are a family of former college athletes as well as business professionals from all backgrounds. They are not only mothers and wives, but firefighters, law enforcement officers, health care professionals, collegiate coaches, mentors, and teachers. The Jacksonville Dixie Blues take pride in the national status that they have worked so hard to achieve. As members of the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA) since 2009, they join over 70 teams across the United States and Mexico who have combined forces to form the most recognized league in the country. As three time national champions and holder of 9 Division titles since inauguration, the Blues strive to represent their home city of Jacksonville as one of the most challenging and most respected locations in the country.
The Dixie Blues were a former member of the now disbanded Women's American Football League, where they were runners-up in the first championship game in 2001 and won the title in 2002. After the league disbanded, they joined the Women's Football Association, where they won the league championship in 2003. The league folded after that single season and the team spent the next two seasons in the Independent Women's Football League. The Dixie Blues then moved to the Women's Football League, where they won the 2006 and 2007 titles. They were planning to join the National Women's Football Association in 2009, but have instead become one of the charter franchises in the Women's Football Alliance. From 2005-2007, the Dixie Blues' WFA tenure was extremely successful, winning three straight division titles. Up until 2013, they were the only WFA charter member never to have lost a regular-season game in league play.
As of the end of the 2016 regular season, their current record stands at 123-15, with their season ending in the 1st round of National Conference playoffs against the Alabama Fire, falling 52-14. Year in and year out, the Blues travel regionally during regular season play and venture across the country as they work into post season play. With the commitment of the coaches and athletes, the Dixie Blues look to continue the success as one of the most decorated teams in women’s professional tackle football history, and look forward to sharing this journey with you!
