Lets Welcome Arena Football Back To The Capital Region
It seems as if there is a plan to create a brand new expansion team to arena football. That expansion team is being proposed for Albany.
I myself never attended many arena football games at the Times Union Center or whatever variation of names you want to call it. I do recall seeing a conquest game when I was younger though. Its fun, now two ways to cut it. Plus with all the popularity that the Firebirds garnered, I am sure this will be a welcome addition. One with open arms.
When the Capital Region lost its hockey franchise in the devils, it left us vacant. Let's face it no major sports franchise will ever call Albany home, sad fact but true. The next best thing is a minor league team or something like arena football. At this moment a long list of investors is looking to make this a reality. Also at this moment, these plans are being finalized. This could be a thing as soon as 2018!!
The New Jersey Devils owner is said to be in the mix of investors. You already left Albany once.
