The Arena Bowl XXV will showcase the best talent arena football has to offer for one amazing event. It is organized and looked after by the Arena Football League commonly known as the AFL. The league itself was the brainchild of Jim Foster, an NFL promotions manager. After a lot of hard work and coming up with rules for the game Jim got hold of the NBC and convinced them about staging a test game. The venue for that first ever game was the Rockford MetroCentre and it was played on 27th April, 1986. Played between Rockford Metros and the Chicago Politicians, the game got a very positive response which enabled Jim to hold a second exhibition game on 26 February, 1997.
The double success of the two test games paved the way to establish an official league to kick-start arena football in earnest. Chicago Bruisers, Denver Dynamite, Pittsburgh Gladiators and Washington Commandos were the four teams that played the inaugural season. The first ever AFL game was played between Commandos and the Gladiators in front of over twelve thousand fans at the Pittsburgh Civic Arena. At the end of the season Pittsburgh and Denver were the two top teams and they squared off in the inaugural ArenaBowl I. The league has gradually risen in profile and has started to attract a lot more people to take interest in the sport. A lot of that is down to the format and the rules of the sport. On top of that the fact a lot of major media groups have taken interest in the sport have also played a big part in taking it to the masses.
While NFL games are played outdoors, the AFL schedules its games under the roof at various indoor arenas around the country. The field of play is smaller than the ones used in NFL which makes the matches more fast-paced and high scoring, which suits the fans right down to the ground. These differences from regular NFL games have given AFL and its teams a unique identity. The regular season lasts for twenty weeks with each side talking to the field eighteen times. AFL kicks-off its season in March that goes all the way to end in August. The increase in popularity has enabled the total number of teams taking part during the regular season to go up to seventeen. The playoffs are staged at the end of the season between eight teams to decided the top two teams who will go out on to take part in the ArenaBowl.
The championship deciding ArenaBowl games have been remarkable spectacles since 1987. Till 2004 the venue for the game was decided by a teams record through the season or the seeding in the playoffs. That rule was discarded in 2005 in favor of a neutral venue but that lasted till 2008. Neutral sites were again decided as the route to take and this year's event will be the first game since 2008 that will be played at a neutral arena. The ArenaBowl is celebrating its twenty fifth birthday this year at the Arena Bowl XXV for the biggest game yet. The game will be played on 10th August at New Orleans Arena. NFL Network will worn in tandem with the AFL to broadcast the game live. So AFL fans, grab your Arena Bowl XXV tickets now and make sure you are at the stadium to be a part of this historic game.
