Greensboro Coliseum – Carolina Cobras

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 Carolina Cobras are one such team, founded in 2018 as part of the National Arena League – this is Greensboro’s third try at indoor football, having had two prior teams that each folded after only two seasons (the Greensboro Prowlers of 2002-03 and the Greensboro Revolution of 2006-07).

Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena is one of the nicer facilities in arena football, and is home to the Jacksonville Sharks, one of the longest-lived teams in the sport. While many franchises fold after a couple of seasons due to financial or attendance issues, the Sharks have found almost a decade of success in their home arena. Founded in 2009, the Jacksonville Sharks started off in the American Football League, but moved to the National Arena League in 2017.
