The Arena Football League's Arizona Rattlers began play in 1992, and have had an amazing run of success since then, capturing six division titles and two ArenaBowl Championships in 1994 and 1997, while appearing in a total of five ArenaBowls.
Playing on an AFL regulation 50 yard field in downtown Phoenix's US Airways Center, the Rattlers roster has featured numerous former NFL players as well as up and comers. The tight confines of an AFL field make for an exciting, high impact, and high scoring football experience. Pay parking is available near the arena, or you can ride the Phoenix METRO Rail.
