The Alliance of American Football includes eight teams that are essentially divided into two geographic regions. Teams in the Eastern/Southeastern half of the United States include the Atlanta Legends, Birmingham Iron, Orlando Apollos, and Memphis Express.
The four teams from the West/Southwest include the Arizona Hotshots, Salt Lake Stallions, San Antonio Commanders, and San Diego Fleet. AAF logos for all eight teams were released last month.
The AAF will debut with one game on CBS. One game per week will also air on CBS Sports Network, while the remaining games will be available to stream through the league’s app. Live fantasy play will also be integrated into the broadcasts.
The Championship Game, set for the weekend of April 26-28, 2019, will also air on CBS.
