Philadelphia Soul Schedule
Spring is here and that can only mean one thing for die hard football fans - the start
of the Arena Football League season! The Philadelphia Soul have long been one of the most popular teams in the leagues and
fans in Philly missing the NFL action of the Eagles are more than happy tiding themselves over to the start of the NFL season
by enjoying some bone jarring action courtesy of the beloved Philadelphia Soul. The team will be looking to dominate the competition
in the American Conference and make a successful playoff run during the 2014 season, and one look at the squad gives every
Soul fan optimism that they can do just that. Be there from the beginning as the Soul take on the best that the AFL has to
offer at the Wells Fargo Center all season.
The Philadelphia Soul will get things rolling at Wells Fargo Center on April
19th when they take on the Jacksonville Sharks with kickoff slated for 6:00 PM. If past games against the Sharks are any indication,
this should be a game for the ages full of hard hitting action with both teams lighting up the scoreboard. Another big game
at Wells Fargo Center this year will take place on May 17th when the perennial AFL powerhouse the Tampa Bay Storm come to
town. This year the Soul also have home games against the Iowa Barnstormers, the New Orleans Voodoo, the San Antonio Talons,
the Pittsburgh Power, the Cleveland Gladiators, the Orlando Predators, and the San Jose Sabercats. Pick a game to catch, buy
tickets from StubHub, and enjoy some incomparable AFL action!
About the Team
The Philadelphia Soul will
be looking to win the Eastern Division of the American Conference, and hopefully the conference as a whole to get home field
advantage in the playoffs, and that all starts with piling up as many home wins as possible at the Wells Fargo Center. This
year's roster seems more than capable of lighting up the scoreboard with Derrick Ross leading the ground attack and Dan Raudabaugh
under center. Raudabaugh will have great targets in Anthony Jones and Ryan McDaniel when he drops back to pass and the Soul's
attack should be tough to stop. Linebacker Joe Goosby will be leading the way on defense as the Soul look to win a second
consecutive conference championship. There is still a bad taste in the mouths of everyone returning from last year's squad
that fell just short of an AFL championship and they will be playing all season with a chip on their shoulder. This year's
Philadelphia Soul will be thrilling to watch right from the start so be sure to get your tickets as soon as possible.
Football fans in general are some of the most passionate sports fans around, but nothing quite
matches the fanaticism surrounding arena league football, and Philadelphia Soul are consistently some of the most dedicated
and vociferous fans in the entire AFL. On game day at Wells Fargo 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.
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.
When the Philadelphia Soul first joined
the AFL they were owned by legendary rock star Jon Bon Jovi. When Bon Jovi sold the franchise they were not without star power
as former Philadelphia superstar quarterback and current ESPN football guru Ron Jaworski stepped in to fill the void. The
Philadelphia Shave won three conference titles, three division championships, and won the AFL Championship in 2008.
