The Orlando Apollos are a professional American football team based in Orlando, Florida, and are charter members of the Alliance of American Football, which began play in February 2019. The team plays its home games at Spectrum Stadium on the campus of the University of Central Florida. They are coached by Heisman Trophy winner and former college and National Football League (NFL) head coach Steve Spurrier. NFL front office veteran Tim Ruskell is the general manager and longtime college athletics executive Michael P. Waddell is the team president.
The team’s name is inspired by the Greek god Apollo, and his and Florida’s connections to the Sun, while the team’s colors of orange and navy are tributes to Florida’s sunshine and the Apollo program, respectively. The helmet depicts Apollo shooting a bow-and-arrow, as he is commonly pictured as an archer.
Apollos games are broadcast on iHeartRadio‘s Real Radio 104.1 FM with the Apollos’ weekly radio show heard Thursdays on WYGM and WJRR HD-2 channel, while a weekday program will be heard on a group of thirteen area radio stations. The Apollos also have a weekly TV show every Wednesday night at 11 p.m. on Cox‘s TV 27. The program, APOLLOS FOOTBALL with Steve Spurrier, will allow fans to get a deeper look at the team, with player features, behind-the-scenes access, and detailed analysis following each game.
