Los Angeles, CA (July 26th, 2016) – For the first time in franchise history, the LA KISS will serve as the host team for the first postseason game. The LA KISS (7-8) will face-off against the Cleveland Gladiators (7-9) on Sunday, August 7th at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, CA at 3PM PST. The LA KISS has changed venues for this particular game due to Honda Center already hosting the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus through August 8th.
“We are thrilled the LA KISS will host the postseason allowing our KISS CORPS fan base to see their team in person,” said LA KISS CEO, Joe Windham. “It’s a testament to how hard our coaches, athletes and support staff have all worked together to accomplish this goal. We are also very thankful to Ernie Hahn and the Valley View Casino Center for hosting our postseason game.”
This will be the third meeting between the LA KISS and the Cleveland Gladiators this season but the first match-up ever in the AFL postseason. The LA KISS won both match-ups earlier in the season by defeating Cleveland 47-42 on April, 16th in Cleveland and 63-61 in Honda Center earlier this month on July 16th.
“I’m extremely proud of this team and what they have accomplished so far this year in making the postseason,” said Omarr Smith, LA KISS head coach. “We look forward to the challenge of facing the Cleveland Gladiators in our first game and we hope all of our fans will join us in San Diego on August 7th.”
