The Alliance of American Football (AAF) was a professional football league that began play on 19 February 2019 following the NFL's Super Bowl LIII. Teams were to play a 10-week season, followed by a 4-team playoff that would haved ended with the Championship Game. However, after 8 weeks, Thomas Dundon (owner of the NHL's Carolina Hurricanes) pulled the plug and all players immediately became free agents.
Teams were based in non-NFL cities except for the Atlanta Legends.
The Championship Game was to be played at Sam Boyd Stadium (Las Vegas, NV) before it was moved to the Ford Center at the Star in Frisco, Texas, on 20 March 2019. At the time the season ended, the Orlando Apollos, with a 7-1 record, were atop the league standings.
All teams had to attempt two-point conversions (no extra points), no kickoffs with start of play from the 25-yard line, play clock ran for 30 seconds (40 seconds in the NFL) and no games could end in ties, unlike in the NFL.
