The Alabama Vipers were a professional arena football team, that played in the Arena Football League. For most of their history, the Vipers played as the Tennessee Valley Vipers in the now-defunct af2, the minor league for the original AFL, where they won the 2008 ArenaCup championship. They play their home games at the Von Braun Center. They were coached by Dean Cokinos who was the head coach of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers in 2003 and the Nashville Kats Offensive Coordinator and Director of Player Personnel from 2005–2007.
The team moved to Gwinnett County, Georgia for the 2011 AFL season and became a new incarnation of the Georgia Force.
