List of ArenaBowl champions

The ArenaBowl is the Arena Football League's championship game. From 1987 to 2004, the ArenaBowl was hosted by either the team with the better regular-season record or the higher seeding in the playoffs. From ArenaBowl XIX in 2005 until ArenaBowl XXII in 2008, the game was played at a neutral site. When the AFL returned in 2010, the original format was used for this and the next season; since 2012, the latter format is being used. ArenaBowl XXV was held in New Orleans; the first neutral-site ArenaBowl since ArenaBowl XXII in New Orleans.

The ArenaBowl, its trophy and all related intellectual property were purchased by Arena Football 1 on December 7, 2009, along with the rest of the assets of the AFL after it declared bankruptcy.[1] Arena Football 1 eventually assumed the AFL identity, and later announced that the ArenaBowl would continue as the AFL's championship game.

The bas-relief football players on the trophy were originally sculpted in Azbro Wax by Massachusetts sculptor James Linehan for the company New England Pewter.

The current ArenaBowl Champions are the Arizona Rattlers, who won their fourth ArenaBowl championship in 2013.

On January 14, 2013, the Arena Football League's Board of Directors voted to award ArenaBowl XXVI to Orlando in the summer of 2013. The game is scheduled for August 17 at 1 PM and will be televised live by CBS. [2]

  • The Pittsburgh Gladiators relocated in 1991 to become the Tampa Bay Storm.
  • The Nashville Kats relocated in 2002 to become the Georgia Force. The Kats were brought back as an expansion team in 2005 and assumed all former team history up to the point when the original Kats relocated to Georgia. The Force are regarded as a completely separate team and keep records from their establishment in 2002 to the present, similar to the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens situation in the NFL.
