The following is the 2019 schedule for the Iowa Barnstormers.
Iowa is entering it's fifth season in the Indoor Football League. The Barnstormers come into the season as the defending champions, having defeated the Sioux Falls Storm in the 2018 United Bowl. They finished the regular season with a record of 11-3. Prior to joining the IFL prior to the 2015 season, they enjoyed a long tenure in the Arena Football League, as well as three seasons in arenafootball2.
The Barnstormers begin their title defense in Week 2 when they visit the Quad City Steamwheelers, an old rival from their af2 days. Their home opener comes the following week against the Green Bay Blizzard, another former af2 foe. They're on the road for three straight in the middle of the season, but close out the season with three consecutive at home with a bye week prior to their final two games. Five of their final six games are at home. Iowa plays their in-state rival, the Cedar Rapids River Kings, three times this season, while they do not face the Arizona Rattlers nor the San Diego Strike Force this season.
Each IFL team plays 14 games (seven home and seven away), and has three bye weeks. The Barnstormers' byes come in Weeks 1, 4 and 15. They play their home games at Wells Fargo Arena at Des Moines, Iowa. Dixie Wooten is the Barnstormers' head coach.
All Barnstormers games will be broadcast locally on the radio and will be available for streaming through those stations. SCtoC will provide links in its previews of the games, as well as recaps of each IFL game. All IFL games are available to be streamed on video via the IFL's YouTube channel.
