BROOKLYN, NY, NEW ROCHELLE, NY and WHITE PLAINS, NY — March 27, 2019 – After a decade long absence, Arena Football is back in New York as the New York Streets begin their quest to win the National Arena League title. As an expansion team, the football staff led by Head Coach Rick Marsilio and Director of Player Personnel Devale Ellis have been hard at work putting together a roster with Arena Football veterans and players from major colleges from around the country as well as some local talent.
The Streets have announced their 2019 schedule and their inaugural season in the National Arena League will kickoff on Saturday April 13th on the road against the Jacksonville Sharks. Then on Saturday April 20th, the Streets will play their first ever home opener against the storied Orlando Predators at the historic Westchester County Center. Kickoff for all home games is 7pm, EST.
The owner and CEO of the New York Streets is Corey Galloway who, with his wife Tamara Galloway, the team’s Chief Revenue Officer, reside in New Rochelle. Corey, who is celebrated as the first black owner of a professional sports franchise in New York, is active in the Westchester community. He was elected as Trustee of New York’s New Rochelle Public Library in 2018 and serves as a member of Westchester Clubmen. Tamara lived for years in the Bedford area and also serves as President of Brooklyn Lifestyle Athletic Club, the largest recreational facility in Brooklyn and the practice center for the New York Streets.
“I’m a Westchester girl. I loved growing up in Westchester and proud to raise my children here. Growing up in Bedford was one of the best experiences, and it’s important to me that our business decisions give back to this community that I love so much,” said Tamara Galloway. “I developed many lifelong friends who still live in the area. I am hopeful that many will come out to support the games.”
“I’m very excited to start the season and we’re ready to compete! As a native New Yorker and Westchester resident, I’m excited to share this entertainment with the Westchester community as we humbly present the New York Streets for your family enjoyment,” said Corey Galloway.
