FLEDGLING FOOTBALL LEAGUE INKS LEASE AT ORANGE BOWL
Published October 15, 1997
The City of Miami has entered into a use agreement with the All American Football League (AAFL) to play in the Orange Bowl starting in March of '99. The AAFL signed a five-year agreement with a renewal option (City of Miami). In Miami, Barry Jackson reports the league "won't pay any rent, but the city will retain a $1 ticket surcharge and collect parking and concession revenues." Miami Mayor Joe Carollo said that the city "expects to make $740,000 each year if the team averages 18,000 fans. The city will also sell corporate naming rights to the Orange Bowl and keep revenues." The AAFL has also signed a lease for a Dallas team to play at the Cotton Bowl (MIAMI HERALD, 10/15).
