The Arena Football League Closes Operations
Today will go down as one of the milestone days of Arena Football. The Arena Football League(AFL) issued a statement today, closing operations of all the teams.
The AFL issued a statement saying in part that they were forced to make the difficult, but necessary decision to close our team services and business operations units in our local markets. CLICK HERE for the official statement. The decision to close all local operations opens up liquid assets for the lawsuit they was filed on October 16, 2019. The National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh is asking for about $2.5 Million for unpaid workers comp insurance.
The Law suite names a ton of AFL Teams including ALABAMA VIPERS, ARIZONA RATTLERS, CHICAGO RUSH, DALLAS VIGILANTES, GEORGIA FORCE, IOWA BARNSTORMERS, JACKSONVILLE SHARKS, KANSAS CITY COMMAND, MILWAUKEE MUSTANGS, NEW ORLEANS VOODOO, OKLAHOMA CITY YARD DAWGZ, ORLANDO PREDATORS, PHILADELPHIA SOUL, PITTSBURGH POWER, SAN JOSE SABERCATS, SPOKANE SHOCK, TAMPA BAY STORM, TULSA TALONS, UTAH BLAZE and others.
The suit states that the National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh provided workers compensation coverage to Respondents, the Arena Football One, LLC (“Arena One”) and the owners, operators, and member teams of that professional sports league. And the League and teams failed to pay.
Now what this has to do with Current National Arena Teams is unknown and efforts for a comment were not available at this time.
