List of Columbus Destroyers seasons

This is a list of seasons completed by the Columbus Destroyers. The Destroyers are a professional arena football franchise of the Arena Football League (AFL), based in Columbus, Ohio. The team was established in 1999 as the Buffalo Destroyers. Though the Destroyers have never had a winning season in the regular season, the franchise has made the playoffs three times in its history. While in Buffalo, the Destroyers lost both playoff games in which they played. Following the 2003 season, the franchise's then owner Mark Hamister announced that he was moving the team to Columbus. The franchise did not fare much better after relocating. However in 2007, the Destroyers qualified for the playoffs as the sixth and lowest seed in the National Conference. They went on to defeat the conference's top three seeds that season, before losing ArenaBowl XXI 55–33. Prior to the 2009 season, the AFL announced that it had suspended operations indefinitely and canceled the 2009 season. Since moving to Columbus, the Destroyers have played its home games in Nationwide Arena.
