Arizona Rattlers to host ArenaBowl XXIX in Glendale on August 26

Posted at 8:11 AM, Aug 14, 2016

After a convincing win in the National Conference Championship game, the Arizona Rattlers will host the ArenaBowl XXIX at Gila River Arena in Glendale on August 26.

The Rattlers defeated the Cleveland Gladiators 82-41 Saturday in front of a crowd of over 15,000 fans. Quarterback Nick Davila had seven touchdowns on 222 yards passing, and Arizona’s defense forced five turnovers.

The Rattlers typically play home games at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix but a scheduling conflict with the Phoenix Mercury has moved the game to Glendale.

The upcoming game will be the fifth time in six seasons the Rattlers play in the ArenaBowl, and the league leading tenth time in team history.

The Rattlers will find out Sunday night who they host, either the Jacksonville Sharks or the Philadelphia Soul. ArenaBowl XXIX will start at 4 p.m. on August 26 and will be televised on ESPN. Tickets are already on sale and can be purchased by clicking HERE.
