With the announcement now official that the Arena Football League will bring back a team to the Capital Region. They want your suggestion for a name.

From the days of the Albany Firebirds and Conquest, we will now have a new team coming up next year as part of the AFL. Instead of going with the nostalgic names like those which could very well be the name of the team if you so wish. This is quote OUR town and we should be able to decide the name of OUR team.

If your suggestion indeed makes it as the new name of the team they will also give you some prizes too. Including to season tickets for every game, a helmet with the teams logo on it, a framed jersey and you will be recognized at the press conference where the team is announced.

Now, lets get creative with this. How about the Albany Empire? That is the name I suggested. Submit your guess at the link below. Tell us your suggestion in the comments on Facebook.
