Tiger Cats Football: Welcome
The Tiger Cats enter their 6th season overall and 3rd as a member of the Women's Spring Football League for the 2014 season. The Tiger Cats Women's Tackle Football Team based in Binghamton, New York began play for its inaugural 2009 season as a member of the Women's Football Alliance and for the 2010 season as a member of the Independent Women's Football League. The Tiger Cats competed as an Independent team in 2011.
The Tiger Cats are the first women's football team representing Binghamton and the Southern Tier of NY and Northern Pennsylvania region. The Tiger Cats are the longest operating Women's football team in the history of Upstate New York and Northern Pennsylvania. The team is also the 2nd longest operating team in all of New York State with only the Brooklyn based New York Sharks being in existence longer.
Home games for the 2009 season were played at the Greater Binghamton Sports Complex, making the Tiger Cats the first women's football team ever to have an indoor venue. For the 2010 IWFL season and the 2011 Independent season, the Tiger Cats played at Binghamton Alumni Stadium. During the 2012 and 2013 WSFL seasons, the Tiger Cats played their home games at the Endless Mountains Sports Complex in Towanda, Pennsylvania. The Tiger Cats hosted the 2012 WSFL's inaugural 8 and 11 man divisions National Championship games on August 11, 2012 also at Endless Mountains Stadium.
In their last regular season game of 2012 the Tiger Cats traveled to Portland, Maine and defeated the Maine Rebels by a score of 22-8 thus becoming the first team in WSFL history to defeat a team from the elite, long-standing Independent Women's Football League (IWFL).
The Tiger Cats use a black and red winged football helmet similar to college football's Michigan Wolverines.
