Predators face off in Arena Football

Welcome to the jungle! The Orlando Predators host their home opener tonight, March 26, and it should be a great one. For those of us that are suffering from pro football withdrawals, the AFL helps bridge the gap between the NFL seasons. If you’ve never experienced arena-style football, you’re missing some stellar action! It is fast paced, in your face, party like it’s 1999!!!

Friday night games at the Amway Center are the best. Everyone is gearing up for the weekend, and it’s just as much of a party atmosphere as it is a football game. The Prowlers (cheerleaders) are in fine fashion too! Tim Tebow will be the guest of honor at the home opener when the 2-time AFL Champion Orlando Predators face off against the Utah Blaze. Having just came off a great win vs. New Orleans, the Predators are fired up for the season.

Season tickets or single game tickets are available and are priced from as low as $5/game to $1,890 for the front row season. Don’t worry though, there are a lot of options in between these price extremes for some great seats. Any event at the new Amway Center is a treat and with the huge size, close-up seating and unmatched technology you won’t miss a second of the action on the field.

Take in a game, party downtown after the Predators WIN and enjoy football while we can. This coming Fall may leave us with withdrawals all over again.

Orlando Tourist Tip: While many parents love to include their children in various sporting events, we recommend the kids stay at home for this one. If you do plan to bring them, please prepare your children for questionable language, behavior and poor sportsmanship situations. While ‘booing’ is strongly discouraged at high school or little league levels, it is often chanted in the Jungle.
