Arena football, an indoors version of American Football played on a field of only 50 yards, was created in the eighties as an attempt to create a faster, higher-scoring version of American football. The US-wide professional Arena Football League was founded in 1987 and has since grown a huge following.
The OC Bombers are hoping for a full house of 16,000 spectators for the match, which will be held at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.
In addition, the Atlanta Kookaburras are hoping to soon close a deal which would see them play an exhibition game at a home match for their hometown Arena Football League side, the Georgia Force.
