Duke City Gladiators Professional Indoor Football Finds Home in the Heart of “The Duke City”
Albuquerque, N.M. – Albuquerque will soon have its very own professional football team. Right in the heart of “The Duke City” rises the Duke City Gladiators Professional Indoor Football Franchise. The Gladiators kick-off the 2015 season with training camp beginning on March 15th and the first game on March 28th. The team schedule is still TBD. The new head coach will be announced at the press conference on Tuesday February 24th, 2015 as well as major plans for the franchise.
The Gladiators are currently in negotiations with an indoor league to host their inaugural season. The frontrunner is the X-League professional Indoor Football which boasts an 11-team league with teams stretching from Texas to Florida. The team will play all home games at Tingley Coliseum (New Mexico State Fairgrounds – Louisiana South of Lomas). The General Manager of Tingley Coliseum will also be at the press conference to address the Gladiators’ venue.
The Duke City Gladiators will boast a fan experience like none other with the catchphrase “Are you not entertained?” The games will be filled with fan interaction and crowd involvement that will leave you wanting more! Attending the Gladiators game won’t be just a game, but an experience to remember.
The ownership will be on hand including the managing partner and the Teams General Manager, Matt Caward an Albuquerque native and local Professional Firefighter. "This franchise will be locally owned and will unveil its plan to sell ownership of the team to the public much in the same way The Green Bay Packers franchise is owned."
Press conference to announce the team will take place on Tuesday February 24th, 2015 at 1:00 PM at Hotel Cascada on Carlisle & I-40 (2500 Carlisle Blvd. NE, Albuquerque, NM 87110 – North of I-40). All media outlets are invited to attend.
Community involvement is a philosophy for the Gladiators and the organization is looking for individuals and community groups who would like to intern and volunteer to get experience working within a professional sports organization. This would be a perfect fit for students who are looking for school credit working with professional sports.
