The Columbus Destroyers are playing for the national title on Sunday, capping a Cinderella run during the AFL playoffs.

Most of the city’s pro sports success has come on the baseball diamond. The Columbus Clippers last won the International League title in 1996, their seventh championship in two decades.

The Destroyers face the San Jose SaberCats in Arena Bowl XXI, kicking off at 3 p.m. on July 29 in New Orleans (TV coverage on ABC).

Fans can watch the game on big screens at the Dispatch Field Haus in Nationwide Arena (doors at 2:30 p.m.), and welcome home the team on Monday, July 30 (doors at 7 p.m.). Click to for info.
