History

In 1991, the Galaxy was a founding member of the World League of American Football (WLAF). They hosted the first ever WLAF game against the London Monarchs at the Waldstadion on March 23, 1991 and scored the first ever WLAF points with a safety, but lost the game.

When the World League resumed in 1995, the Galaxy, the Monarchs, and Barcelona Dragons were the only former WLAF teams that continued playing. Before it folded, Frankfurt Galaxy was the oldest pro football team outside of the NFL and CFL.

Frankfurt won the World Bowl four times in 1995, 1999, 2003 and 2006, but had been unable to defend it, as they also lost four times, in 1996, 1998, 2004, and 2007.
