The Albany Firebirds issued a release Tuesday afternoon, announcing the team would play in the Arena Development League (ADL) next season.
"We are incredibly excited to bring professional football back to the southwest Georgia community," said Firebirds Owner Darrien Teals. "We want to create something that not only excites the community, but also is able to give back. We are thrilled to be joining a league with a strong model for success and with local rivalries."
