Their home games were played at Cumberland County Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, North Carolina. They made a splash quickly in the af2, reeling off three straight playoff berths. The team combined to go 35-13 in their first three seasons, (21-8 at home) establishing themselves as a perennial contender. They garnered an average attendance of 4,635. However, they relocated to Albany, Georgia following the 2004 season.
