in general are some of the most passionate sports fans around, but nothing quite matches the fanaticism surrounding arena
league football, and Orlando Predators fans are consistently some of the most dedicated and vociferous fans in the entire

down closer and closer to the opening kick off the crowd works itself into a frenzy. Finally both teams are ready for kick

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
The Orlando Predators were founded in 1991 and had an impressive 19 year run of
making the playoffs from 1992 to 2011 which also saw the franchise win the Arena Bowl twice, in 1998 and 2000. After an unprecedented
year out of the playoffs in 2012 the Predators returned to the postseason in 2013 and look ready to start another lengthy
streak of qualifying for the playoffs. Nine former Predators have been inducted into the Arena Football Hall of Fame including
current Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden.
