AFL HEADQUARTERS MOVE TO FLORIDA; ADDS SAN JOSE FOR '95
Published November 1, 1994
The Arena Football League announced they will transfer "complete business operations" from Chicago to an office in Florida. AFL Commissioner James Drucker said relocation of the league HQs will bring an estimated $5M a year in economic benefits to the state. A decision has not been made as to where they will be located, but Drucker did say it would be within the metro areas of Tampa, Orlando or Miami. The AFL has three franchises in Florida and Drucker said "the league's desire to expand to South America was also influential in the decision to leave Chicago." In addition, the announcement of the new San Jose franchise is expected soon (Roger Mills, ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 11/1).
