The NAL (National Arena League) has adapted its 2021 schedule so they can begin the season later and plan on having fans in attendance. The new 8 game NAL schedule is scheduled to begin on May 22nd and end on July 24th with playoffs and a championship game to follow.

In a press release from the NAL Commissioner Chris Siegfried said “Arena football is all about the fans, they help make the game great. We wouldn’t think about playing
without our fans, and this decision was made with them in mind."

Orlando Predator and Albany Empire part-owner Ron Tridico said he expects to be able to accommodate approximately 3,600 fans at the Times Union Center for Albany Empire games.
