Buying Guide: 2019 Orlando Apollos Tickets

The biggest name in the new Alliance of American Football isn’t a player. Nope, the “head ball coach” will be roaming the sidelines in Orlando, less than two hours from where he sealed his legend as coach of the Florida Gators.

Steve Spurrier was an early commit to the AAF, and when the Orlando Apollos kick off against the Atlanta Hotshots at 8 p.m. on February 9, he’ll be back on the sidelines in his home state, coaching SEC players from around Florida and the region.

Spurrier, one of the most well-known college football coaches in history, took Florida to one national championship (1996) and six SEC championships (1991, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 2000) during his 11-year tenure at Florida. As a college head coach – he was also a head coach at Duke and South Carolina – Spurrier put together a 228-89-2 career record, making him one of less than 100 college coaches with 200 or more wins. Spurrier was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as both a coach and a player. 

“The Alliance offers a unique opportunity to get back into coaching, this time for a spring season, and work closely with hungry, talented athletes looking to begin, revive or extend their professional careers,” Spurrier was quoted as saying on the AAF’s official website.

He’ll try to work more of his magic in Orlando, where he’ll have 11 players from his alma mater playing alongside former Florida State and Miami standouts, as well.

The Apollos first game is one of two that will kick off the AAF’s inaugural season. The San Diego at San Antonio game also starts at 8 p.m. on February 9. Each of the league’s eight teams will play 10 regular-season games between February 9-April 14. The Apollos will play their home games at University of Central Florida’s Spectrum Stadium, also referred to as the “Bounce House,” because it vibrates and shakes when fans jump together.

The Apollos have myriad tickets and ticket packages available for the inaugural season. Below is a look at the options.

SEASON TICKETS

Season tickets to Spectrum Stadium include five home games and first rights to playoff games. Season-ticket holders also get exclusive benefits, including monthly special events, discounts on official team merchandise, and access to players and coaches at events throughout the season. Season tickets begin at $75 and the price represents a discount over single-game tickets. Season-ticket holders will also get the same base pricing for the 2020 season.

SINGLE GAME TICKETS

Single-game tickets are available on the primary market for all games through the AAF’s ticket partner, Ticketmaster. General admission and seats in the lower bowl are still available for the season opener for as little as $20. Fans who want to treat themselves can still get 50-yardline seats behind the Apollo bench in Section 110, Row 8 for $220.

GROUP TICKETS

With group tickets to the Apollos, fans can treat staff, co-workers, friends or family to the opportunity to sit together for a professional football game at a discounted price. Group tickets can also be used for charity fundraisers, and group tickets come with the team’s “Fan Experience Package.” Group tickets are specially priced for 10 or more tickets.

PREMIUM TICKETS

The Apollos offer fans three options for premium tickets, and all include premier seating in the Bounce House, VIP preferred parking, and access to the VIP Pregame Experience. With the “Olympus Seats,” fans get seats at midfield and all-inclusive food and beverage. The “Apollos Seats” package includes tickets in the first 19 rows between the 30-yard lines (either behind the Apollos or visitors’ bench), and Tower Club tickets include Premium seats between the 30-yard lines, a private air-conditioned club with all-inclusive food and non-alcoholic beverages, access to a cash bar for alcoholic beverages, and private restrooms.
