The New Orleans VooDoo played in the Arena Football League starting in 2004. After Hurricane Katrina damaged their home arena in 2005, the team suspended operations. They returned in 2007 for two seasons before folding. The franchise was revived in 2010 when the Bossier-Shreveport Battle Wings moved to the Big Easy and resurrected the VooDoo nickname. The second VooDoo team lasted until 2015.
