How exciting is it to have Arena Football back in Albany! We’re looking forward to a great season with The Albany Empire football team. Starting Spring of 2018 at the Times Union Center.
Get out of the house and away from the TV, the live experience is a game changer! The AFL smacks you in the face with high-octane entertainment! Ticket prices are affordable for family fun, with 50 yard fields the touchdowns are plentiful and action is full force. The Albany Empire will have crippling hits and Hail Mary passes, you wont be disappointed!
The AFL is in the business of high scoring football, here are some of the rules:
- Field: 85 feet wide, 50 yards long, for a faster, higher-scoring affair.
- Goal posts: Nine feet wide with a 15-foot high crossbar.
- Rebound nets: Kickoffs and passing plays that bounce off the nets are still in play.
- Passing: Just like in NCAA, receivers only need one foot inbounds.
- Punting: Not allowed. You gotta man-up and go for it on fourth down.
The team is owned and operated by a local group of business men including George Hearst 111, Dan Nolan and Ed Swyer. The local group has partnered with the ownership group of the Philadelphia Soul of the Arena Football League, led by Ron Jaworski, Dick Vermeil, Marques Colston, Jahri Evans and other Philadelphia area businessmen.
