It's Official, The Albany Empire Will Return

The Albany Empire will be back, the NAL announced Tuesday. It was previously announced that Albany would host an arena football team, but the naming rights were a sticking point after the league went bankrupt after the 2019 season. In addition, Rob Keefe will return as head coach.

Assuming the coronavirus pandemic is a distant memory by then, the league is expected to begin in early to mid 2021.
