TEAM HISTORY
ARIZONA HOTSHOTS
Arizona Hotshots pay homage to the Hotshots draw inspiration from the more than 100 elite teams of exemplary, ferocious wildland firefighters from the U.S. Forest Service and other federal, state and county agencies, mostly located in the west. Hotshot firefighters are highly successful and an essential line of defense in battling the most serious wildfires across the country. They play at the home of the Arizona State Sun Devils (NCAA FBS).

ATLANTA LEGENDS
Atlanta Legends pay homage to its city's "heroic, larger-than-life" heroes, from Hank Aaron (Major League Baseball player) and Chipper Jones (Major League Baseball player) to the team's own offensive coordinator, Michael Vick (played for the Atlanta Falcons), as well as "the biggest legends of the civil rights movement," with their colours being purple, gold and white which "represent rich heritage, tradition and royalty." They will play at the home of the Georgia State Panthers (NCAA FBS).

BIRMINGHAM IRON
Birmingham Iron pays tribute to the state's football fans as well as "the hard-working steel workers who provided the iron that fueled the industrial revolution". They will play at the home of the UAB Blazers (NCAA FBS - CUSA).

MEMPHIS EXPRESS
Memphis Express represents a city that has become one of America's top hubs for transportation and pays tribute to the "logistics" and "new heights" of Tennessee travel. Its colors are red, navy blue and white to represent "America's largest small town." They will play at the home of the Memphis Tigers (NCAA FBS).

ORLANDO APOLLOS
Orlando Apollos draws its inspiration from Apollo, the Greek god of the sun, as well as Florida's "sunshine state" moniker. Deemed "a glowing testament to the power, imagery and energy made possible by the sun," its colors are navy blue, dark orange and bright orange to reflect "the warm Florida sunshine." Its debut coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission.. They will play at the home of the UCF Knights Orlando (NCAA FBS - The American).

SALT LAKE STALLIONS
Salt Lake Stallions' logo is inspired by the hood ornaments that adorned some of the fastest vehicles that raced across Bonneville (an ancient lake bed of Lake Bonneville in Utah often used by early auto racers and the site of most of the world land speed record runs). The shimmering silver of the whitecap mountaintops blends with the blue Salt Lake sky for a picturesque color scheme. The Stallions are about being the fastest on the football field and combining that with equally impressive brute force. That is the Stallion, fast and free, breeding confidence and a winning tradition. They play at the home of the Utah Utes (NCAA FBS - PAC 12).

SAN ANTONIO COMMANDERS
San Antonio Commanders pay tribute to a city and its people - a tribute to San Antonio's collaborative spirit, its many victories, and its three centuries of military presence now embodied by so many Army and Air Force families. They play at the home of the UTSA Roadrunners (NCAA FBS - CUSA).

SAN DIEGO FLEET
San Diego Fleet brings pro football back to the city and pays tributes to the Naval Base San Diego is a workplace for more than 35,000 personnel and 54 ships. They play at the home of the San Diego State Aztecs (NCAA FBS - MWC) and former home of the NFL's Chargers who moved to Los Angeles in 2017.
