After four great seasons, the Albany Panthers' chances of seeing a fifth season are threatened. Due to the lack of ticket sales and sponsorships, the Panthers might not be kicking off the 2014 season come March. The Panthers have a rich winning tradition considering out of those four years of play, they have seen the playoffs every season and earned back-to-back championships in 2011 and 2012. In order for the Albany Panthers to play this season they need $100,000 to make up the shortage of funds. To help attain the money, the organization has changed the ticket prices. Tickets bought in advance can be purchased for $10 dollars and tickets at the door are now $15. The organization is also reaching out to previous and new sponsors to help attain the money. The twist is earning the money before the end of the month according to the PIFL (Professional Indoor Football League) The main reason for the fast approaching deadline is so they can notify the team they will be playing this season.
