Get your game gear ready for April 27th!

The Albany Empire, our very own arena football team, have announced their 2019 game schedule, kicking off here in Albany on April 27th against Columbus.  Spanning April 27th to July 20th, the Empire have a full season ahead of them (hopefully full of wins).  If you missed out on catching our new arena football team in their debut season last year, it's necessary to catch a game this year.  High intensity, pyrotechnics, the Empresses dance team, and cheering fans packing in the Times Union Center?  Just another Saturday night for the Empire.  You can get event and ticket info here.

Along with the game schedule, a few rule changes were also announced.  The changes include a reduction in the amount and duration of media timeouts, changes pertaining to team timeouts per half, and changes to timing rules.  You can read more about those changes here.
