Fans Can Beat the Heat Indoors at the Times Union Center This Saturday

ALBANY, NY – The Albany Empire announce that fans can now buy tickets to this Saturday’s game for as low as $5.  Due to the Saratoga Race Course being closed on Saturday, the Empire are offering fans an alternative to get out of the heat and enjoy Albany’s last game of the regular season.  The game, presented by Pioneer Bank, will be on Saturday, July 20, at 7 pm against the Philadelphia Soul.

Fans can purchase tickets for Saturday’s game for as low as $5 online, by calling 518-533-2200, or by stopping by the Albany Empire office located in the Times Union Center at any time on Friday.

“When we received the news that the Track was closing due to the weather conditions, we thought this would be an ideal time to offer the Capital Region an entertainment alternative indoors at an incredibly low price point,” said George Manias, C.O.O. of the Albany Empire.  “We encourage anyone who hasn’t been out to a game yet, to experience what we offer and help us ride this wave into the playoffs.  We are preparing ourselves to finish our business and we thought this offering would help stir up some additional crowd support to help us do so.”

“It’s always 72 degrees and sunny when playing in the Arena Football League,” said Rob Keefe, Head Coach of the Albany Empire.  “We are asking that all fans stay safe from the heat and come cheer us on as we look to cap off a great regular season with a victory and carry momentum into the playoffs!”

Following the regular season finale against the Soul, the Empire will remain home for the first round of a home-and-home playoff series.  The game will be on July 27 at 7pm against the to-be-determined fourth seed.

Tickets for the July 27 playoff game are on sale now by calling 518-533-2200, by going to, or by stopping by the Empire office located in the Times Union Center.  A limited number of great seats are still available!  Want to bring your organization to a game, fundraise, or perform on the field? Group experiences are now on sale.  Call 518-533-2200 for additional information.
