The Rochester Kings are a professional indoor football team based in Brighton, Monroe County, New York, and a member of the American Arena League (AAL).

History

The Kings are the fourth indoor football team to call Rochester home. The Rochester Brigade, an AF2 member and farm club to the Buffalo Destroyers, operated from 2001 to 2003, folding when its parent club relocated to Ohio. The Rochester Raiders were the second and most commercially successful to date, playing six seasons from 2006 to 2010 in the Continental Indoor Football League and Indoor Football League, then in 2014 with American Indoor Football. The Roc City Thunder played one independent season in 2013.

The Kings were created in 2017 as an inaugural member of the short-lived Can-Am Indoor Football League, which formed to fill a territorial void in indoor football since most existing leagues were confined to the southern United States and Great Plains regions. The Kings were members of the league's western division, which encompassed upstate New York and Southern Ontario teams (the division's other teams were in Buffalo, Glens Falls and Hamilton).

Rochester compiled a perfect regular season as a member of the Can-Am league, defeated Buffalo in the playoffs, then lost the league's championship game to the Vermont Bucks. When the Can-Am league merges into the American Arena League for 2018, the Kings will be included in the merger.
