History

2000

The Fury was formed as a charter member of the Women's Professional Football League when it started full-league play in 2000 (previously, it had just been a barnstorming venture between the Lake Michigan Minx and the Minnesota Vixen). The Fury were placed in the National Conference South Division alongside their in-state rivals the Daytona Beach Barracudas and the Tampa Tempest. In their inaugural season, the Fury finished with a 3-4 record, in-between the undefeated Barracudas (6-0) and the winless Tempest (0-6).

2001

2001 was a much better year for the Fury, as the team started with a 3-1 record. However, due to the September 11 attacks, the remainder of the regular season was cancelled, and despite four forfeit wins in the Fury's favor, they did not get a chance to compete for the Championship. The official record books show 7-1 as the Fury's final record

2002

The Fury took the year off to reorganize and get ready for their move to the Independent Women's Football League.

2003

In their first season in the IWFL, the Fury finished with a 5-1 record which was good for the Eastern Conference South Atlantic Division title, finishing ahead of their rivals the Tampa Bay Terminators and Orlando Starz. However, for undetermined reasons, the Fury forfeited their first-round playoff game to the Bay State Warriors.

2004 & 2005: The X-Team Years

In 2004 and 2005, the Fury played as an IWFL exhibition team ("X-Team"). Not much is known about their time in the X-Team circuit.

2006

2006 marked the Fury's return to full-time seasonal play. They picked up right where they left off, finishing with a 7-1 record good for second place in the South Atlantic Division. Unfortunately, their playoff run would end soon after it began after a 14-8 loss to their old WPFL rivals the New York Sharks in the first round.

2007

The Fury finished third place in the South Atlantic Division with a 3-5 record.

2008

Once again, the Fury finished third place in the South Atlantic Division with a 3-5 record.

2009

Yet again, the Fury finished third place in the South Atlantic Division, only this time with a 6-2 record.

2010

For the fourth consecutive season, the Fury finished third place in the Southeast Division, with a 5-3 record this time around.

2011

For the 2011 season, the Fury joined the Women's Football Alliance, joining the Jacksonville Dixie Blues, Gulf Coast Riptide, Orlando Anarchy, and Tampa Bay Pirates as teams representing the Sunshine State. Also, longtime IWFL rival the Palm Beach Punishers made the move to the WFA.

That season proved to be a return to their dominant ways, winning the Coastal Division title with a 7-1 record (their first title since 2003) and reaching the playoffs for the first time since 2006. However, their playoff run was as short-lived as before, losing to the Jacksonville Dixie Blues in the first round by a score of 20-18.

2018

Posted on April 7, 2018 The Miami Fury kickoff its first game of the season on April 14. The first game will be on the road in Tampa, Florida at 7 PM. This year the team was able to bring back the majority of its veteran players while adding a few new rookies to the roster. It will definitely be an exciting and competitive season. Stay tuned for updates.
