AFL HEADQUARTERS MOVE TO FLORIDA; ADDS SAN JOSE FOR '95

     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).
