Georgia Rampage Releases 2014 Schedule

Monday, December 30, 2013

The Georgia Rampage, Dalton's professional arena football team, has released its 2014 schedule. The team will begin player camp in February and will kick off the first X League season game March 3.  

The Rampage is going into its second season and first season in the newly created X League. The X league is an innovated league that is keeping some of the traditional rules of indoor football and also adding some new styles of play, said officials. Dalton will make history, as the first X League game will be played in the Northwest Georgia Trade Center. 

Going into the X League, the Rampage will keep the rivals going with the Florida Marine Raiders and the St. Louis Attack. Last season the Missouri Monsters played in St. Louis and treated fans in Dalton and St. Louis to some great games with the Rampage. The first franchise victory was against the Monsters at home in Dalton and they returned the favor in St. Louis with a win over the Rampage in four overtime periods.  

The St. Louis Attack will have some of the same players and some of the ownership the Monsters had.
