The Arena League welcomes the SFL’s Seattle Orcas and Washington Wave  owner and is proud to announce the return of arena football to the city of Richmond, Virginia. The team will be named the Richmond Centipedes and will play their inaugural season in the TAL for the league’s second season.

The team is named to show homage to the owner’s favorite video game, Centipede. The Centipede’s colors will be Green, Orange, and Black.

Richmond has seen a slew of teams come and go over the years including the Richmond Raiders and Richmond Revolution. The Centipedes will play in the Richmond Coliseum, which will seat over 13,000 fans.

The Arena League is the premiere arena/indoor league around the world with its second season to kick off in early 2021.
