ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The Duke City Gladiators hung out with fans at B2B Garden Brewery Thursday.

The Gladiators will take on the Arizona Rattlers Saturday.

It’s a challenge against a team that’s a staple in arena football.

"This is a big match up because, you know, you’re going against a championship-caliber team and a championship-caliber staff as well," said Coach Martino Theus. "So, you know, we want to get our guys prepared and ready, which we know that we are."

Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. at the Rio Rancho Events Center.
