  • The South Georgia Wildcats were a professional arena football team based in Albany, Georgia. They were member of the South Division of the American Conference of Arenafootball2 (AF2).

    The Wildcats joined the AF2 in 2002 as an expansion team, after the league granted an expansion franchise to Fayetteville, North Carolina. During their first 3 seasons they were known as the Cape Fear Wildcats until they relocated to Albany, Georgia in 2005. They played their home games at Albany Civic Center in Albany, Georgia.

    Cape Fear WildcatsEdit

    The team began as the Cape Fear Wildcats. The Wildcats began play in the 2002 season as an expansion team in the AF2.[1] Their home games were played at Cumberland County Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, North Carolina. They made a splash quickly in the AF2, reeling off three straight playoff berths. The team combined to go 35-13 in their first three seasons, (21-8 at home) establishing themselves as a perennial contender. They garnered an average attendance of 4,635. However, they relocated to Albany, Georgia following the 2004 season.

    The Wildcats relocated to Albany, Georgia after the 2004 season. The team retained the Wildcat nickname from its earlier years. Relocation was tough, however, as the team went a combined 6-26 its first two seasons, winning just three home games.
