Orlando Predators Arena Football Team Suspends Operations

Today, the Orlando Predators announced they have decided to suspend operations. It was an unexpected shock to Orlando sports fans.

In an official statement released this afternoon, they explain why:

The team’s organization says they will be processing refunds but this will take some time over the next couple of weeks.

The announcement comes less than two weeks prior to a scheduled Open Tryout for new players.

The team was founded in 1991 as an expansion team of the AFL. The team advanced to the playoffs 19 consecutive seasons between 1992 and 2011, becoming the ArenaBowl champions in 1998 and 2000 during that span.
