HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 24, 2014 — After two seasons in the cozy confines of the Equine Arena, the Harrisburg Heat next season will be moving back to their original home inside the State Farm Show Complex’s Large Arena, the team announced today.
The 7,300-seat Large Arena had been the home to original Heat from 1991-2003. The Heat, on their return to pro indoor soccer in 2012, moved into the 2,200-seat Equine Arena before their inaugural season in the Professional Arena Soccer League.
“Many of our season ticket holders and original fans wanted to see the Heat back in the Large Arena,” said Heat owner John Wilsbach. “We used the first two seasons in the Equine Arena to reestablish our fan base. Now it’s time to get back home where we belong.
“This move gives us several months to start promoting games with our season ticket holders and our group sales,” Wilsbach said.
