The Alliance of American Football's Atlanta Legends have put together a serious offensive threat. With a game-changing ex-NFL quarterback, a former Philadelphia coordinator with three NFC Championship trips to his credit and the SEC's touchdown leader, it's probably a fair bet the Legends will put up plenty of points during the league's inaugural season.
Offensive coordinator Michael Vick, the former NFL quarterback, will make his return to Atlanta, after playing for the Falcons from 2001-08, picking up three Pro Bowl nods along the way. Known as the guy who made rushing a key part of quarterbacking, Vick will have lots to work with in former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray, the most prolific scorer in SEC history.
Couple Vick and Murray with head coach Brad Childress, who brought the Philadelphia Eagles to three straight NFC Championship games (2001-03), and fans can expect a high-powered offense with plenty of variety.
The Legends will play their first game on February 9 at the Orlando Apollos at 8 p.m. at Orlando’s Spectrum Stadium. Along with the San Diego at San Antonio game, the Legends game will kick off the AAF’s inaugural season. The eight league teams will play 10 regular-season games each between February 9-April 14.
Atlanta will play its home games at Georgia State Stadium.
With the season set to start the week after the Super Bowl, here’s a look at ticket options to see the Legends.
Legends season ticket holders don’t just get to pick their seats and get playoff ticket priority, they also get a chance to mingle with team coaches and players at member-only events throughout the season. Season tickets start at $75 for five home games, and fans will get a discount over single-game tickets, team-shop discounts, and access to exclusive season-ticket holder events.
Single-game tickets are available at Georgia State Stadium for all Legends home games, including the home season opener on February 24 against the Birmingham Irons. Tickets for all home games begin at $20 for seats in the second deck. Primary market ticket vendor Ticketmaster also has seats close to the action for the season opener, including seats in Section 113, Row 3 at the 40-yard line behind the Legends bench for $200.
If you’ve got 10 or more people who want to catch a Legends game together, group tickets are available. Fans can contact the team to put down a priority deposit for group tickets. In addition to getting a chance to sit with your friends, group-ticket holders will have access to Fan Experience Packages.
For those looking for more than just a seat at the game, the Legends have four levels of premium tickets available, including those in climate-controlled executive suites that include a food-and-beverage package. Other premium tickets are available in the Legends Club, an all-inclusive location above the north end zone, the Corner Terraces, which are four-person tables that include access to the Legends Club, and Lower Level Midfield seats that put fans close to the action and include $100 in “Legends Bucks,” which can be spent at concession stands throughout the season.
