Arena Football Returns To Orlando
Saturday Night April 13, 2019 will be a night to remember in Downtown Orlando, and the Orlando Predators return to action for the first time in years. This may not be the Predators you remember, but it’s ARENA FOOTBALL and the JUNGLE is alive and well.
While the Predators name is familiar to arena football fans, the new league has new rules that will be noticeable from the moment they enter the arena. The National Arena League does not play with end zone nets, as was custom in the Arena Football League, and teams are awarded two points on a kickoff that goes through the uprights.
The base pay for rookie players in the NAL is $200 per week. Veterans make $225 with the potential for loyalty raises on a year-by-year basis. A $50 bonus is given to players on the winning team each week.
An ownership group led by former Preds defensive specialist Kenny McEntyre and Nate Starling put together a squad in Orlando and the excitement is building.
LockedIN Magazine’s Tina Pruitt and I See Music Photography will be on hand at Amway Center on Saturday Night, making sure we keep the players and the Fans #LockedIN. For those that need tickets, CLICK HERE.
