Columbus Lions play in NAL championship; fans gather for watch party

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Fans of the Columbus Lions gathered Monday night to watch the team play in the National Arena League (NAL) championship game.

The Lions are playing the Carolina Cobras. Even though fans couldn't travel with the team, they decided to still support them in their fourth championship appearance.

"To have the same group to see our guys off when they left for Greensboro on Saturday, and now to be able to cheer them on from here, they might not be able to physically hear us but we sort of feel like they can definitely feel us cheering for them," said Harley Dukes, director of media and community relations for the Columbus Lions.

Those who attended the watch party enjoyed food and drinks, and also raffled off items.
