ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Arena football fans will be entertained even when players aren't on the field this season. 

The Albany Panthers kick off their second season in the Civic Center on March 19th and they'll do it with the support of a marching band.  Last year, the team didn't have a band, and fans said they missed the excitement and entertainment.

Now, high scholars from across the area are forming an all-star volunteer band for the Panthers.

General Manager Will Carter said, "It helps us bring more entertainment, more excitement to our games and so with having a band it gets the community involved.  It's something that I did this off-season.  I called all of our sponsors, I called all of our season ticket holders.  It was the one thing they said was missing from our games."

City commissioner Chris Pike is organizing and leading the band.  If you are interested in joining the Marching Panthers, call the team office and let them know.  You can also call to order your season tickets.  That number is 435-1230.
