An Empire is Unleashed in Albany(1/24) As if it were Christmas Day, the anticipation and excitement was palpable as the Albany AFL announced the team brand on Tuesday night at the Palace Theater. Season ticket holders and VIPs were invited to witness the unveiling of a new era in Albany’s Arena Football history. The big reveal was made in a video clip shortly after the presentation began.

Valor Hopefuls Look to Land Roster Spot(12/19) Two Saturdays ago was one of the first snowfalls of the season in the DMV but that didn’t stop over 100 athletes from showing up for the Washington Valor open tryouts at Athletic Performance, Inc. in Gambrills, MD. The weather wouldn't stop me from attending either.

Albany AFL Opens its Doors(12/7) Seventeen years after it left, Ron Jaworski declared on Tuesday evening, “Professional football is back in Albany!” This declaration was made in front of a few hundred in attendance at the Albany AFL Open House at the Times Union Center. Season pass holders were invited to the event to mingle with team ownership, the coaching staff, and Arena Football legend “Touchdown” Eddie Brown.
