Florence, S.C. (WPDE) — The Carolina Havoc, 2018 defending champion of the American Arena League (AAL), has moved to the Florence Center and their season will start in the spring of 2019.
The former Atlanta Havoc played at the Buford Arena last season in Buford, Ga.
They are owned by Heath Tate, Chris Duffy and Kelli Powers.
The team will be led by their general manager and Head Coach Josh Resignalo.
“We want to first thank all of our great fans in Buford. The Havoc ninth Man played a pivotal role for us not only in the arena but in the community as well. As we make this move to Florence, we want to represent the Pee Dee and the City of Florence in a first-class manner. Our players will be aggressive on the field and gentlemen off it. The citizens of Florence and the Pee Dee will be proud to call the Havoc their own. We have a very tough task ahead of us in defending the 2018 championship this upcoming season. We feel that the team we are going to put on the field will do that and more,” said Resignalo.
The Carolina Havoc is the Second arena football team to locate in Florence.
The Florence Phantoms disbanded after one season back in 2007 at the Florence Center.
Resignalo said their plans are to become a part of the community and they don’t plan on leaving.
Season ticket information will be made available soon.
