New Orleans Voodoo Schedule
There is perhaps no better time to be in New Orleans than in the Spring, when the weather
is just right and the New Orleans Voodoo are kicking off another exciting season of Arena League Football. The Voodoo are
one of the league's most popular teams and offer football fans in the Big Easy something to whet their appetite before the
NFL season kicks off and the Saints are back in action. The Voodoo bring all of the hard hitting, fast paced action that football
fans have come to expect from the Saints but at an even more frenetic pace. The New Orleans Voodoo will once again be looking
to dominate all of their competitors in the South Division of the American Conference in an attempt to make it to the Arena
Bowl. Be there right from the start with New Orleans Voodoo tickets courtesy of StubHub.
The Voodoo get their home schedule
started on March 29th with a game against the Cleveland Gladiators at Smoothie King Center in New Orleans. The home opener
for the Voodoo is always one of the most exciting games on the schedule and this year should be no exception. Another big
game on the home schedule takes place on May 30th when the Tampa Bay Storm come to town. Expect both teams to light up the
scoreboard in this game which will likely be back and forth all day. Other home games for the Voodoo in 2014 include battles
with the Orlando Predators, the San Antonio Talons, the Iowa Barnstormers, the the Jacksonville Sharks, and the Pittsburgh
Power. Be there from the beginning as the Voodoo take on the best that the AFL has to offer at the Smoothie King Center all
About the Team
The New Orleans Voodoo will be looking to make the 2014 season one to remember
and appear to have enough talent on their roster to do exactly that. Quarterback Ryan Perriloux is poised to make his mark
as one of the premiere quarterbacks in the league and you can be sure that with the help of wide receivers like Chase Deadder
and Skyler Green the offense will be lighting up the scoreboard and will make it difficult for any team in the league to keep
pace. Coach Pat O'Hara will have plenty of help on the defensive side of the football which will be anchored by defensive
back Demarcus Robinson and linebacker Wesley Mauia. Scoring against the Voodoo will not be easy for the opposition in 2014
as they appear to be one of the best teams in the league this season. Be sure to be there right from the start for what should
be one of the best seasons in the history of New Orleans Voodoo football.
in general are some of the most passionate sports fans around, but nothing quite matches the fanaticism surrounding arena
league football, and Arizona Rattlers fans are consistently some of the most dedicated and vociferous fans in the entire AFL.
On game day at US Airways Center, the fans file in and take their seats when the cheering and chanting begins. As the clock
winds down closer and closer to the opening kick off the crowd works itself into a frenzy. Finally both teams are ready for
kick off and the excitement really begins. Thunderous, bone rattling hits, incredible displays of speed and agility, powerful
runs, and tremendous passes and catches set the arena on fire for the following four quarters of world class arena league
football. By the time the final whistle blows your voice is hoarse and your palms are stinging from clapping and giving high
fives and you will already be planning a return trip.
The Arena Football League is the top
of the tops when it comes to indoor football in the United States and is the third-longest running professional football league
in North America, behind only the National Football League and the Canadian Football League. Each of the fourteen teams play
18 regular season games with two bye weeks all the while trying to position themselves for a spot in the playoffs where they
can hopefully make a run to the Arena Bowl. The league has been so successful that for nine years it even had a developmental
league, the af2. To date the Tampa Bay Storm lead the way as the most successful franchise in league history having won five
Arena Bowl championships.
The 2006 season of the New Orleans Voodoo was suspended due to the destruction
of Hurricane Katrina and many of the players on the team were reassigned to the Kansas City Brigade who entered the Arena
Football League in 2006 as an expansion team. The following year the Voodoo returned and suffered through a 5-10 season although
they managed to defeat two of the best teams in the league, the Orlando Predators and the San Jose Sabercats.
