Arena League Cancels 2009 Season
The Arena Football League canceled its 2009 season.
There had been reports last week that the league would suspend its operations because of worsening economic conditions. The league indicated then that no such decision had been made, but issued a written statement today saying the move had been approved during a conference call of members of its board of directors Sunday night.
"Every owner in the AFL is strongly committed to the League, the game, and, most importantly, the fans," Ed Policy, the league's acting commissioner, said in a written statement. "Owners, however, recognize that, especially in light of the current unprecedented economic climate, the AFL, as a business enterprise, needs to be restructured if it is to continue to provide its unique brand of this affordable, fan-friendly sport."
