- Arena football isn't dead yet.
Officials from what will be known as Arena Football 1 said
Monday that they will have at least 16 teams ready to play in 2010,
including four in former Arena Football League markets: Salt Lake
City, Chicago, Phoenix and Orlando, Fla. The Arizona Rattlers and
Orlando Predators played in the old AFL, but the new league's
Chicago and Salt Lake City teams did not.
Arena Football 1 said its markets also will include Little Rock,
Ark.; Fresno, Calif.; Des Moines, Iowa; Jacksonville, Fla.;
Lexington, Ky.; Milwaukee; Oklahoma City; Spokane, Wash.;
Huntsville, Ala.; Kennewick, Wash.; and Tulsa.
