Fans of theCarolina Cobrascame out to the Entertainment and Sports Arena for a preview Tuesday night. They got a look at the special goal posts and a chance to walk the field and check out their seats.
The team's general manager says the real surprise comes when the players hit the turf.
"It is completely a step up," says Brett Bender of the game's fast pace. "There's a lot more passing, about 80 percent passing, and the scoring is out of sight."
Bender hopes the fast-paced entertainment will fill up arena seats on summer nights.
"There's not a whole lot to do here in the summer. You've got a brand new building that's state of the art which is perfect for arena football, and we've got an inexpensive ticket," he says.
Season tickets start at $79 for eight games. The home opener takes place April 14.
