Arena Football is coming back!
Just not back to Philadelphia.
At least not yet.
After being dark for a season, the AFL will resume in April with 15 teams. There are no teams in the Northeast section of the United States, but commissioner Jerry Kurz hopes a franchise could be in Philly by 2011.
"[Our] expansion committee has been in communication with a group that we very much want from the Philadelphia market," Kurz said. "No one has done more to help brand and become a part of the community than the Philadelphia Soul's previous ownership did."
