Arena Football One released their inaugural schedule for the 2010 season and the Alabama Vipers have many familiar names on it.
Alabama will open their season on Saturday, Apr. 3rd at Bossier-Shreveport. The Battlewings are a former af2 foe, but the two teams played very little in their time together in the league.
