Football was resurrected in Brantford in 1991 with the creation of the Brant and District Football Club under the leadership of Walt Wettges. The club was allowed to use the Bisons team name by the Bisons Alumni which owned the rights to the Bisons name. The club also adopted the colours from the 1970’s with red jerseys and black helmets and pants.

In the first season, which was played in the fall of 1991, the Bisons only had two teams with a total of 40 players registered that played in the Southwestern Ontario Football Association Of Leagues (SOFAL) atom and peewee divisions. The club expanded the number of teams in 1992 to include a tyke team and hosted the SOFAL Championships at the Gretzky Centre in a total mud bowl.

1993 also saw the Bisons expand into the SOFAL bantam division. The Bisons continued to experience annual increases in the number of young athletes playing football in the community and by 2002 had over seven teams in the various divisions of SOFAL.

In 1993, the Bisons took on the huge job of hosting and running the largest ever Wilson Bowl Provincial Championship which had 56 teams participate. Five sets of goal posts were installed on fields throughout the city so all the games could be completed.
