AFL Issues Statement on San Antonio Talons
Monday October 13, 2014
CHICAGO – The San Antonio Talons will go dormant for the 2015 AFL season, the Arena Football League office announced today. Discussions are ongoing with interested parties to operate a San Antonio franchise again in the near future.
“San Antonio is a very desirable city for the AFL and efforts will continue to bring Arena Football back to the Alamo City,” AFL Commissioner Scott C. Butera said. “The AFL has the utmost appreciation for the passion and support Talons fans have shown their team and we look forward to returning to San Antonio.”
The addition of the Las Vegas Outlaws means that season 28 of the AFL will commence with 13 franchises competing in an 18 game schedule spread out over a 20 week regular season. The full 2015 regular season schedule will be made available in the coming weeks.
