ORLANDO, FLORIDA — The Orlando Predators today announced its schedule for the 2015 Arena Football League season.
The team kicks off its 24th season with its return to the Amway Center on Sunday, March 29, against the Philadelphia Soul. It is the team’s first game back at the Amway Center after playing last season in the CFE Arena at the University of Central Florida.
This season also marks the first full season under new owner, Westgate Resorts CEO David Siegel, who acquired the team in July.
“The Orlando Predators will finally be back home in Downtown Orlando at the Amway Center,” said Siegel.
“This season, we’re going to deliver a product the Orlando community will be excited to support and will proudly represent our city and fans.”
This season’s home games feature a rematch of last year’s American Conference Championship against the Cleveland Gladiators on May 2 and a visit from in-state rival Jacksonville Sharks on August 1. The “War on I-4” returns when the Predators host the Tampa Bay Storm on May 16 and for the regular season finale, August 8.
“We’re excited to announce the dates for our first season under our new ownership,” said Orlando Predators President Jared Saft.
“We can’t wait to welcome all of our new and returning fans back to start a new chapter in this franchise’s storied history.”
In Week 4, the Predators will host a match-up against the LA KISS, the expansion team launched last season by KISS band members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley and former Predators owner Brett Bouchy.
Bouchy was an owner of the Predators for 15 years before leaving in 2013 to launch the LA KISS. The LA KISS was the subject of the AMC reality TV series 4th and Loud.
Tough road match-ups include a visit to division opponent New Orleans VooDoo in Week 3 and a trip to face the three-time defending champion Arizona Rattlers in Week 13.
Season ticket packages start at $99 and are available. Packages up to $2,400 offer exclusive benefits such as a vacation at Westgate Las Vegas or Westgate River Ranch, invitations to player meet-and-greet-events at Westgate Resorts properties, access to team practices, complimentary drinks in the Fields Ultimate Lounge and complimentary parking in the GEICO Garage.
