The AFL Is Souless

The Philadelphia Soul's 2024 return to the AFL lasted all of 2 games, none being played at the team's home arena in Trenton, New Jersey

The Philadelphia Soul's return to Arena Football League was short-lived, but team leadership is promising the Soul will live on.

A post on the X social media platform on Friday, May 10, announced that the Philadelphia Soul was "taking a pause" for the rest of the 2024 AFL season.

Just days earlier, the Soul's X page promoted the Soul's Sunday, May 12, 2024, road game against the Nashville Kats. The Kats wound up hosting the Salina Liberty instead, falling 50-30, according to the Kats' social media.

That kind of hodgepodge game is unfortunately fairly typical during the reboot of the AFL, as pointed out by Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio. The Iowa Rampage and Georgia Force had already folded and the AFL has no had games broadcast on NFL Network as was first announced.

The Soul (well sort of them since they used mostly replacement players for their opener on the road against the Louisiana Voodoo) went 0-2 before folding. The team's last game on Sunday, May 5, on the road against the Minnesota Myth wasn't even streamed, "due to technical difficulties," according to the team.
