If the rough and tumble action of the game is what intrigues you about NFL football or NCAA football, get yourself some arena football tickets and check out the hyper variation provided by the AF2, the Arena Football League's minor league. You’ll see the same plays but at “fast-forward” speed! With only 50 yards to cover, it’s no wonder the teams move back and forth twice as fast.
Arena football rules are also designed to ensure that games are speedy and high scoring. No punting – just four chances to move the ball ten yards or more. The clock keeps on running until the last minute of each half, unless the ref stops play for a penalty, injury, or one of each side’s three timeouts per half. The game doesn’t even stop to switch out offensive and defensive squads, since everybody plays both, except for the quarterback, kicker, and certain specialists.
Scoring generally works like standard football but utilizing a drop kick counts extra. An after-touchdown conversion by drop kick is worth two points, and a field goal by drop kick earns four. As the name implies, arena football is played indoors. Your tickets not only seat you close to the action, but you can stay warm and dry. No promises as to the noise level though, as enthusiastic football fans are known to get a little rowdy! Get AF2 tickets and you’ll be one of them!
