The Albany Empire is a professional arena football team based in Albany, New York, that was established in late 2017, but began play in the Arena Football League (AFL) in 2018. Home games are played at Times Union Center.

The Empire is Albany’s third arena football team and second AFL team; they succeed the original Albany Firebirds who began AFL play in 1990 and enjoyed great success (most notably winning ArenaBowl XIII) before moving to Indianapolis following the 2000 season. Two years later the Albany Conquest were established, but played in the af2 (the AFL development league) from 2002 until that league folded after the 2009 season.  During the last season they changed their name from the Conquest to the Firebirds.
