East vs. West Teams Set For Games in Honolulu and Beijing

PHILADELPHIA (November 24, 2013) – AFL China announces the rosters for the upcoming All-Star exhibition games to be played in Honolulu, HI and Beijing, China on Saturday, November 2 and Sunday, November 10, respectively.

The players were selected from the existing Arena Football League rosters provided by the league office, as well as participants from the inaugural AFL China tryouts that were held earlier this year in Honolulu, HI. Player selections were also based on an online fan voting process as well as mandatory requirements (passport and visa process) that must have been met in order for the players to be considered.

“We are proud to unveil this historic group of athletes and coaches to demonstrate the sport of Arena Football to the world,” said AFL China President David Niu. “These games will go down in history as the beginning of something special and bringing the game of Arena Football to China.”

The East team will be coached by Philadelphia Soul head coach Clint Dolezel and assistant head coach Phil Bogle, while the West team will be coached by Arizona Rattlers head coach Kevin Guy and former AFL great Cecil Doggette.
