Like most other minor sports leagues, the af2 exists to develop football players, and also to help players adapt to the style and pace of arena football. In addition, the af2 is similar to other minor leagues because af2 teams play in smaller cities and smaller venues. While the AFL is played in larger cities like Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Dallas, Tampa,and Chicago, the af2 fields teams in cities such as Austin, Texas, Bossier City, Louisiana, North Little Rock, Green Bay, Huntsville, Manchester, Oklahoma City, Boise, Tri-Cities, Spokane, Louisville and, Tulsa. Players also earn less in the af2, with each player making $250 per game.[1][2] United States simply as football, is a competitive team sport that is both fast-paced and strategic. ...

History

In a June 2003 interview with Sports Illustrated, AFL commissioner David Baker briefly mentioned the af2, saying how one day, he envisions the league growing to 100 teams. Currently, this vision seems rather unlikely, as there has not been consistent expansion of the league. The af2 started off with 15 teams in 2000, then expanded to 28 teams in 2001, and finally 34 in 2002. The number of teams the league fielded dropped every year from there on after, until the 2006 season. 27 teams were fielded in 2003, 25 in 2004, and 20 in 2005. Finally, in 2006, the af2 saw its first expansion in 4 years, fielding 23 teams, and continued that into 2007 with 30 teams.

The drop in teams between 2002 and 2006 can be partially attributed to the league expanding too rapidly in its first 3 seasons. Many teams were financially unstable and folded. This can be due to higher expenses compared to similar leagues. Franchise fees in the league range from $600,000 to $1 million.[1] Historically, massive expansions have had little success. For instance, the National Indoor Football League, a rival indoor league, has seen large amounts of expansion teams since they began in 2001 but many struggle financially. The following is a long list of arena football minor-league teams that, at one time, played in the af2. ...

Nine new expansion teams were approved for 2007 in the af2: the Boise Burn, the Cincinnati Jungle Kats, the Fort Wayne Fusion, the Laredo Lobos, the Lubbock Renegades, the Mahoning Valley Thunder, the Texas Copperheads, the Tri-Cities Fever, and the Corpus Christi Sharks. The Texas, Laredo, and Tri-Cities teams moved to the af2 from other indoor football leagues. The Boise Burn is an arena football team based in Boise, Idaho. ...

Merge with Xtreme Football League

The Xtreme Football League was a proposed indoor football league that was formed in early 1999, with the intent to begin play in 2000. The cities that were to take part in the league were: Birmingham, Greenville, Huntsville (Tennessee Valley), Jacksonville, Norfolk, Pensacola, Richmond, Roanoke and Tallahassee. Although a logo was developed and venues had begun to be lined up, the league merged with the af2 on July 29, 1999, one year before either league took the field.

ArenaCup

The ArenaCup is the af2's championship game, held each August. For the league's first five years, it was held at the arena of the higher seeded team. However, as their parent league, the AFL, has changed, the af2 has changed too. The 2005 ArenaCup was the first to be played at a neutral site in Bossier City, Louisiana. The 2006 ArenaCup was played in Coliseo de Puerto Rico in San Juan.[2] The ArenaCup returned to Bossier City, Louisiana, in 2007. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

For the 2000 and 2001 ArenaCups, the game was televised nationally by TNN (now Spike TV), who carried AFL games on Sunday afternoons at the time. However, when the AFL announced their televised games would be shown on NBC rather than TNN, the ArenaCup telecast was lost. The 2002 ArenaCup was televised by the Vision Network, and the 2003 game was televised by KWHB, a local station in Tulsa, Oklahoma. After having no television coverage in 2004, the game was telecast nationally by Fox Sports Net in 2005 and Comcast Sports Net in 2006.
