City of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer (pictured above with Siegel) added: “This is exciting news for our city and comes at a time when Orlando is undergoing a very significant transformation as a sports destination. It is also great to see the Predators return to the Amway Center, where they will enjoy a state of the art facility and provide ideal proximity to their fan base. We applaud David for his vision in bringing this forth. The Predators will be even more fun to watch going forward.”

According to Siegel, the purchase and return to the Amway was motivated by the opportunity to grant an already storied franchise the exposure and attention it deserves in a world class venue. “The Orlando Predators is a great football franchise and I look forward to helping them remain highly competitive for years to come,” he said. “They provide great entertainment value for locals and visitors alike and have been staple in our community since they were introduced into the league over 20 years ago.”

Siegel also plans to partner the Predators with the Westgate Foundation and create more community engagement opportunities. He added, “The team is an ideal platform for providing entertainment for the youth. Given our new location back at the Amway, we particularly want to ensure the youth of the surrounding communities enjoy access to the games taking place nearby.”

Westgate Resorts executive Jared Saft has been named President of the Orlando Predators and will oversee the team while Arena Bowl championship coach Rob Keefe, who joined the team in 2013, remains Head Coach.

Entering their 25th year in the AFL, the Orlando Predators were introduced to the league in 1991, four years after the league was formed. They have made 20 playoff appearances, including seven division titles and two championships in 1998 and 2000.
