The Arizona Adrenaline moved to the IFL for 2011 after leaving the defunct AIFA. The Adrenaline were not a successful franchise, scoring more than 20 points in just six games on the year. The defense picked just nine passes and forced six fumbles, while sacking opposing quarterbacks seven times. Opponents averaged 94 rushing yards per game. On special teams, Arizona was 0/7 on field goals and just 3/11 on extra point kick tries. Keith Poole was the team's best quarterback, throwing for 481 yards, nine touchdowns and ten picks. James Mayfield caught nine touchdowns and made 47 catches for 456 yards. Muhammad Shamsid-Deen picked five passes. In their second game, the Adrenaline lost by ten to the Colorado Ice, who would go on to be the top seed in the Intense Conference playoffs. They then lost 31-14 on the road at Reading in what would be their last close game. A litany of replacement players signed with the team as the season dragged on. The lone win came at home against a semipro squad brought in to replace the Bricktown Brawlers. The 54-6 victory was followed up by a 79-32 home loss to Amarillo.
