NOTE: With the AAF ceasing operations effective immediately, this schedule will no longer be updated. We will arrange scores from Weeks 1-8, and leave the rest as an archive with records intact to show how things were heading into Week 9 before the league folded.
ORIGINAL POST: The following is the full schedule for the Alliance of American Football's Inaugural 2019 Season.
The Alliance was founded by Charlie Ebersol, son of former NBC Sports (and XFL co-founder) Dick Ebersol, and former NFL general manager Bill Polian. The AAF won't take the path of former leagues like the USFL and the upcoming XFL reboot, instead representing itself as a "feeder system" to the NFL with players who do not make NFL rosters and who opt not to play in the Canadian Football League or arena football leagues.
Although the NFL isn't specifically involved in the league, several former NFL players, including safety Troy Polamalu, wide receiver Hines Ward, and defensive end Justin Tuck are involved in advisory roles.
The league is made up of eight franchises, owned and operated by the league in a single entity business model, and are primarily located in markets with at least one professional sports franchise. The teams include the Arizona (Phoenix) Hotshots, Atlanta Legends, Birmingham Iron, Memphis Express, Orlando Apollos, Salt Lake Stallions, San Antonio Commanders, and San Diego Fleet.
The league's inaugural season will span 10 weeks, beginning one week after Super Bowl LIII on February 9th, and ending the weekend of April 12th. The top two teams from the Eastern and Western Conference will advance to the playoffs. The AAF's championship will be played at
The game will be different from the NFL, including extra point kicks, as teams have to convert two-point conversions, no kickoffs (drives will start at the team's 25-own yard line, and a 30 second play clock instead of 40.
The league has a television contract with CBS Sports. The inaugural game and the Championship will air on CBS, while the AAF Game of the Week will air on its cable network, CBS Sports Network (CBSSN). TNT wil air one regular season game and one playoff game per season, while the NFL Network will air two games per week. The remaining game will be streamed online on B/R Live. Games on CBS, CBSSN, TNT, and NFL Network will be noted in the schedule when possible.
Each week's games will appear most recent at the top of the post. Final results will be updated following the conclusion of the games and listed in ascending order. All game times are listed in the Pacific Timezone (PST) and are subject to change. Where applicable, click on the final score to view the box score courtesy of NoExtraPoints.com.
