The Carolina Force was an expansion team for the 2012 season. This incarnation of the Force has no relation to the South Carolina Force of the older AIFA and SIFL. The team played six regular season games, winning their first three contests. However, after a one point loss at Cape Fear, the team was dissolved and finished the rest of the year as a travel-only squad. The travel team played in a first-round playoff contest at Harrisburg, losing 51-12.
