Duplin County Events Center – East Carolina Torch

The southeastern United States has seen a resurgence of indoor football of late, with several new teams being created in the past couple of years in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.  The East Carolina Torch are one such team, formed in 2015 and now part of the newly created American Arena League (AAL), which was founded in 2018 out of a merger between two other indoor football leagues.  After spending their first two seasons playing in Raleigh’s Dorton Arena as the Triangle Torch, in 2018 the team began playing in Duplin County Events Center (90 miles east of Raleigh) due to a change in ownership, and subsequently changed their name to the East Carolina Torch.
