Orlando Mayor, Predators To Announce Tuesday City Will Host ArenaBowl XXVI

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Orlando Predators Managing Partner Brett Bouchy reportedly have some big news for Orlando sports fans.
Officials reportedly plan to announce at a news conference at 2:15 p.m. Tuesday that the city has agreed to host ArenaBowl XXVI — the Arena Football League’s 2013 championship game — at the Amway Center on Aug. 17, Bouchy told the Orlando Sentinel.
This is a one-year agreement between the city and the AFL, and the game will be televised on CBS — the first time a broadcast network will air the ArenaBowl since 2008, the Sentinel reports.
Orlando will be the sixth neutral-site ArenaBowl since 2005, but the City Beautiful has previously hosted non neutral-site games in 1992, 1994 and 2000, according to the Sentinel.
Las Vegas and New Orleans have previously hosted the ArenaBowl and USA Today reports ArenaBowl XXII brought about $15 million to $25 million in revenue to New Orleans.
