About the American Arena League:

The AAL was founded in 2017 and operated as the Arena Pro Football League. At the conclusion of the inaugural season, teams from other leagues requested to join, thus, creating the largest professional arena league in the U.S. and the name change to the American Arena League. The American Arena League takes pride in having 12 teams including those with many years of rich tradition.
