Arena football is a fast-paced, high scoring version of American Football.

While the team will use the band’s logo, it is not known whether the team’s uniforms will be silver and black.

On Thursday, the Arena Football League announced it was awarding an expansion team to a group of individuals that includes KISS band members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. The team, called the LA KISS, will begin playing in March at the Honda Center in Anaheim.

“As a fast-paced, high-action band, this partnership with the AFL was an obvious fit for us,” Simmons said in a statement. “Attending an LA KISS game in 2014 will be similar to a live KISS show, with thrilling, heart-pounding action.”

Season tickets, which went on sale Thursday starting at $99, will include a free KISS concert.

The league and the music world have joined forces before. The Philadelphia Soul, who will be playing in the championship game Saturday, were partly owned by Jon Bon Jovi until 2010.
