The Philadelphia Soul celebrated winning their second consecutive Arena Bowl championship with a pep rally at City Hall on Wednesday.


“For the second consecutive year, the Soul have brought the AFL championship home to Philadelphia, and we are pleased to recognize this day and their incredible achievement,” said Mayor Kenney, who declared the day “Philadelphia Soul World Champions Day” in the city.

The Soul won the title Saturday, defeating the Tampa Bay Storm, 44-40, at the Wells Fargo Center. They did so in dramatic fashion, coming back from a 20-7 deficit late in the second quarter to take a 44-34 lead before Tampa scored a late touchdown.





It was the Soul’s third championship in franchise history. The team, owned by former Eagles star quarterback Ron Jaworski, won its first title in 2008.
