The conference championships to determine who will compete in Arena Bowl XXVIII have been set. On August 22, the Arizona Rattlers and San Jose SaberCats will compete in the National Conference title game while the Philadelphia Soul and Jacksonville Sharks will compete in the American Conference match on August 23. The Arena Bowl XXVIII game will be held on August 29.
The San Jose SaberCats became the first team in the 2015 Arena Football season to have reached a spot in the AFL playoffs. The team reached a 12-1 record while also not only scoring more points than anyone else in the league but also being the only team to have given up less than 500 points. This is all still with plenty of time left to go in the regular season.
There are three teams that ended up getting out of the Arena Football League before the 2015 season. One of them left for another league while the other two have dissolved.
The Cleveland Gladiators hosted the Arizona Rattlers in ArenaBowl XXVII to end the 2014 Arena Football League season. The Rattlers were 3/1 favorites to win the game at the start of the season while the Gladiators had 20/1 odds at the start. Meanwhile, the game ended up having pick-em odds with -110 payouts for either team to win the game.
