The fifth showdown between these two teams should be a dandy with a trip to Arena Bowl XXX on the line, especially after the two teams play three thrillers during the regular season.
One ticket to Arena Bowl XXX has been punched as the Philadelphia Soul held off the upstart Baltimore Brigade on Saturday afternoon.
A true David vs. Goliath matchup, as the premier team left in the AFL, and the league’s defending champions, the Philadelphia Soul play host to the expansion Baltimore Brigade in what will be the fifth meeting of the season between the two teams.
The league website claims it has hosted combines in June, but there is no mention of a schedule, actual team names, divisions, or when they might play actual games.
Now that minor league indoor football season is officially over, the crazy season of relocating, renaming, jumping leagues, or just flat folding, is underway.
And this week, we’ve got a whole bunch of stuff to get you caught up on.
The four new cities that were granted NAL franchises, per the NAL Facebook page and website, are Richmond, Virginia; Boston, Massachusetts; Providence, Rhode Island; and Orlando, Florida.
You could see a league drop down to just three teams this off-season, and likely send them scrambling to other leagues just to keep playing, or, the more likely scenario, is they will lose 3-4 teams, find 3-4 suckers to join in for a season or two to keep the league and its big team afloat, then repeat the dance all over again.
