The Arena Bowl is going to be happening right here in the Capital Region!

Our home team, the Albany Empire, are headed to the Arena Bowl XXXII (the Super Bowl of arena football), and playing host.  Beating the Baltimore Brigade in the playoffs, the Empire announced that they'll be hosting the Arena Bowl, on Sunday August 11th, right here at the Times Union Center.

The games are already eventful enough, from the sports action to the Empresses dancing to pyrotechnics to block parties and more.  The team have worked hard the past two years to build their empire, and here's to hoping that they not just host but destroy the Arena Bowl too, and come out on top!  If you want more info on the event, head to the team's official website!  Here's to the 'rise of the empire'!
