The Arizona Rattlers are a professional arena football team based in Phoenix, Arizona. They are currently members of the Western Division of the National Conference in the Arena Football League (AFL) and are the current league champions.

Since the team's establishment in 1992, the Rattlers have won seven division titles and have played in seven ArenaBowl Championship games, winning championships in 1994, 1997, and 2012.
In early years, the Rattlers played their home games at America West Arena, which they shared with the Phoenix Suns. The arena was renamed US Airways Center in 2005 and the Rattlers continue to play their home games there and share the arena with the Phoenix Suns and the Phoenix Mercury. They conduct practices at Gene Autry Park in Mesa, Arizona.

In the playoffs, by winning the National Conference championship, they clinched a berth in ArenaBowl XXIV. They lost the game to the Jacksonville Sharks when Jacksonville quarterback Aaron Garcia threw a game-winning touchdown pass on the game's final play.

"I have been an Arizona Rattlers season ticket holder since day one and attended the first Arizona Rattlers game at America West Arena. I believe in the team and the Arena Football League," said Shurts. "I want to bring the passion and excitement for Rattlers football back to US Airways Center and the Valley."
"Downtown Phoenix continues to grow and the Rattlers will be an integral part of the affordable, family-fun entertainment that the Suns and the Mercury are providing the local community," Shurts added.
