Alliance of American Football (AAF) Teams

The Alliance of American Football (AAF) is a new professional league that consists of two conferences with eight teams. The teams are located across the southern and western United States and are divided into two, four-team conferences, Eastern and Western.

The league will lean on its local roots to make up the bulk of each team’s rosters while a mix of college and other well-known venues will serve as the home stadiums. With reputable head coaches and a strong talent base on the field, the AAF has plenty of potential.
