Arena football making triumphant return to Capital Region
October 24, 2017 06:59 PM
Arena football is back in the Capital Region.
A news conference Tuesday morning confirmed what NewsChannel 13 exclusively broke last week. An expansion team will be playing at the Times Union Center next season.
Now that we have a team back, they need a team name a coach and players all before the end of March.
The Arena League was highly successful back in the 1990s, but the Firebirds had good players and a good coach when they won the Arena Bowl in 2000 over Orlando.
Co-owners Ron Jaworski and Dick Vermeil, who know a little something about winning games, said not to worry, there is enough time to put together a quality team.
Hiring a coach is high on the priority list. The price of ticket is $13.
