Two upcoming Alliance of American Football games will be broadcast on CBS, the AAF and CBS Sports announced on Thursday.
CBS will broadcast one of the two Conference Championship games on Sunday, April 21 at 12:00pm ET. At the halfway point of the season, Orlando (5-0) and Birmingham (3-2) lead the Eastern Conference, while San Antonio and San Diego are tied atop the Western Conference at 3-2.
CBS was already scheduled to televise the inaugural Alliance Championship Game on Saturday, April 27 at 8:00pm ET. The game will be played at Ford Center at the Star in Frisco, Texas.
Additionally, CBS will now broadcast the Memphis Express at San Antonio Commanders game on Saturday, April 6 at 12:00pm ET (Week 9). The game was previously set for a 4:00pm ET start on Bleacher Report Live.
“Our focus for season one has been continued growth on and off the field. The addition of two games to CBS is a result of strong fan engagement across all platforms that continues to increase week-on-week, and the quality of football being played during a time when the most popular sport in the U.S. has traditionally been on hiatus,” said Charlie Ebersol, co-founder and CEO, The Alliance. “We look forward to reaching even more fans when the stakes are at its highest, as teams fight for a chance to be a part of history in the first-ever Alliance of American Football Championship.”
Week 6 of the Alliance of American Football begins on Saturday, March 16 with Memphis at Salt Lake at 4:00pm ET on Bleacher Report Live. Arizona at Orlando follows at 8:00pm ET on the NFL Network.
Sunday’s action starts with San Antonio at Atlanta at 4:00pm ET on CBS Sports Network. Week 6 concludes with Birmingham at San Diego at 8:00pm ET on the NFL Network.
