Less than a year ago the development of the Albany Empire began. We were introduced to the early stages of a team with no coaches, no players and no name but the Capital Region fell in love right away. As we prepare for year two George Manias joined us to update us on open tryouts for the the Empresses and the players as well as potential expansion of the Arena Football League.

Manias was an open book and let us know that the league is in talks with three location that have the potential to add teams in the AFL. The most likely seems to be Atlantic City, next most likely is Newark and finally Louisville. To be clear any or all of them could come through or fall through but it's a good sign that Manias spoke so freely about them. To learn about all the latest Empire news click HERE.
