GAME PREVIEW: WEEK 1

The Philadelphia Soul will kick off the 2019 season on Saturday, April 27 at 3:30 pm against the Atlantic City Blackjacks. The three-time ArenaBowl champions will play host to the new expansion franchise at the Wells Fargo Center. Fans can watch live on NBC Sports Philadelphia+ or listen to the action on 97.5 The Fanatic.

After winning titles in 2016 and 2017, the Soul had a disappointing 2018 season that saw the team finish 7-5 and exit in the first round of the playoffs. However, this year’s squad is looking to return to championship form.

“One thing that hasn’t changed for the Philadelphia Soul: Our goal is to be the world champions,” said Soul owner Ron Jaworski. “We were not last year. Our goal is to be the world champions this year.”

Among those returning for the Soul are quarterback and former league MVP Dan Raudabaugh, 2018 Defensive Back of the Year James Romain, and 2018 First Team All-Arena wideout Darius Prince. Joining the experienced core are a number of promising new faces, including six AFL rookies.
