Where Will The National Arena League Go From Here
Do you hear the Knocking? That’s the Future and its knocking on the door of the National Arena League at the moment as the 2018 Season looms in the near Future. Down to 5 teams currently, what will happen to the league is up in the Air as the Albany Firebirds join the Arena Football League today giving the AFL 6 Teams.
The Albany Firebirds operated from 1990 to 2000 with them winning the 1999 Arena Bowl with a 59-48 Win over the Orlando Predators in what was at that time the Pepsi Center. Attendance peaked over 12,000 fans per game in 1995, and by 2000 they averaged 9500 fans per game. The Firebirds moved to Indianapolis after the 2000 season claiming they needed to be in a bigger market.
The National Arena League is now at 6 Teams, and so far Not a word from the Georgia Firebirds leaves the league fan base wondering what is going on. The Georgia Firebirds of the National Arena League and had a dismal 2-9 record and couldn’t seem to get the local attention. No word on what the Georgia Firebirds are planning at this moment, as LockedIN Magazine reached out to team owners with no response as of now.
The battle for Arena League supremacy is in high gear with the American Arena League, National Arena League and the Arena Football League all looking to be that top spot.
