The Philadelphia Soul are quite literally on a drive to Arena Bowl XXII presented by Virgin Mobile.
On July 10 only the Soul are offering tickets for a special price of $7.12 to honor the momentous day July 12, which will mark Philadelphia’s first trip to the Arena Football League’s National Conference Championship Game. To kickoff the celebration, team mascot Soulman and Soul fans will venture from the team practice facility, the Coliseum in Voorhees, NJ to the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia to deliver the game ball in preparation for Saturday’s big game. Soul head coach Bret Munsey will start the event by handing the ball off to Soulman at approximately 8:45 a.m. Different fans will be lined along the way and the game ball will handed off fan to fan for the duration of the 18 mile trip. Saturn of Philadelphia will be providing cars and other transportation will aid during stretches of the trip.
Season ticket holders and fans are asked to submit their name to be considered for this unique opportunity by calling 215-636-0421.
At 1 p.m. Thursday, the caravan is scheduled to reach City Hall and turn down South Broad Street. At 3 p.m., Soulman along with the game ball will meet up with players at Citizens Bank Park for the Seventh Inning stretch with the Phillie Phanatic.
