Viewpoint: Arena Football to Albany

It is good news that the X-League Indoor Football League has announced it will have an expansion team in Albany next year.

The problem with the news is the local ownership group Threeforty Creative doesn't have a place to play.

The city says negotiations for the soon to be named team to play in the Albany Civic Center are in the preliminary stage.

We hope these negotiations can move quickly and a deal that is fair for both sides is reached soon since indoor football has proven to be very popular with local fans.

And indoor football is also good start in bringing events and people back to the Civic Center.
