The Las Vegas Gladiators were a team in the Arena Football League. It began when the New Jersey Gladiators moved to Las Vegas for the 2003 season. In 2004, they switched divisions. Their first arena, the Thomas & Mack Center was home to the city's previous AFL team, the Las Vegas Sting. In 2007, the Gladiators moved to the Orleans Arena. After failing to increase community interest, the team moved to Cleveland, Ohio and kept the Gladiators name.
