The Albany Panthers still have hope for another season if a bridge gap financing structure can be worked out with the Professional Indoor Football League.

The indoor football team are finalizing a potential solution which would allow the team to play in the 2014 season. Two weeks ago, the 2014 season was in jeopardy due to the necessary lack of funds, but with an extension from the PIFL, the team's hopes are still alive.

According to owner Rob Chappell, the team and PIFL are developing the financing structure this week which will include a trip from league officials.

The solution would require the Panthers March 22nd home game against Nashville to be rescheduled for June 7th.

Assuming all the details of the financing structure are confirmed this week, the Panthers season would kick off at home against 2013 PIFL Champion- Alabama Hammers on Saturday, April 5th.
