Tampa Bay Storm Tickets

Tampa Bay Storm tickets

Tampa Bay Storm Schedule

Tampa Bay is well known as a football loving town and between the Tampa Bay Storm of the Arena Football League and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the NFL, football fans in the area can always get their fill. The Storm relocated to Tampa Bay in 1991 and have been one of the most popular and successful teams in the city ever since. When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers season comes to a close the attention of football fans in Tampa focuses in solely on the Tampa Bay Storm. The Storm are historically one of the best teams in the league although they have had some struggles during the 2014 season and they will be looking for all of the fan support they can get as they look to make a charge up the American Conference standings.

On May 24th the Storm take on division rivals the Jacksonville Sharks. The two teams are locked in a tight battle for second place in the American Conference South and will both be looking to get as many wins as possible down the stretch to make the playoffs. June 7th brings the Philadelphia Soul to town in a matchup of two American Conference teams looking to make the playoffs. The Orlando Predators are first in the American South and they come to Tampa on June 21st in what could be a must-win game for the Storm. The home schedule closes out with one of the toughest games of the season when the Cleveland Gladiators take on the Storm on July 26th. The Gladiators and the Arizona Rattlers are the teams with the two best records in the AFL and a win against them at the end of the season could provide momentum and confidence that could carry the Storm deep into the playoffs.


The Team

The Tampa Bay Storm may have gone through some difficult stretches this season but they have won more AFL titles than any other franchise with five. The players on the squad are well aware of the proud history of the franchise and will be looking to end their mid-season skid just in time to make a run to the AFL Playoffs. The franchise has its roots in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where it started as a charter member of the AFL as the Pittsburgh Gladiators. In 1991 the franchise moved to Tampa Bay where football fans who were itching for football during the Buccaneers' offseason flocked to Storm games in droves. They currently play their home game in the Tampa Bay Times Forum which is known throughout the league as one of the loudest and most energetic arena in the country.


The Experience

Football fans in general are some of the most passionate sports fans around, but nothing quite matches the rabid fan base of Arena League Football, and Tampa Bay Storm fans are definitely some of the most dedicated and vociferous fans in the entire AFL. On game day at Tampa Bay Times Forum, 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. At last, 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 League

The Arena Football League is the best of the best 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 NFL and the Canadian Football League. Each of the fourteen teams play eighteen 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 deep run all the way to the Arena Bowl. The league has been so successful that for nine years it also 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.


Trivia

The hero of Tampa Bay's Arena Bowl V victory was quarterback Jay Gruden who led the team on a miraculous last minute drive that culminated in a deep touchdown pass to Stevie Thomas and gave the Storm a thrilling come from behind victory in the championship game. Gruden is now entering his first year as head coach of the Washington Redskins of the NFL. The War on I-4 is the name given to the rivalry between the Storm and their chief adversaries the Orlando Predators.
