AFL All-Star Game Planned For Honolulu, With Beijing A Possible Future Host City
AFL Global, an entity aimed at introducing pro U.S. arena football teams in China, yesterday announced that it, along with the U.S.-based Arena Football League, "will be hosting an AFL All-Star Game on Saturday, Nov. 16 in Honululu," according to Vaughn Johnson of PHILLY.com. A release said there will be a second ASG in Beijing in the “near future.” But a source said that "none of this has been made official yet." The source added that "all of this still hinges on approval from the AFL." Outside of a shared name, "AFL Global is a separate entity from the AFL." However, the AFL "gave permission to AFL Global to use its logos and brand of Arena Football" (PHILLY.com, 7/23).
