Chinese American Football League Will Be Unveiled Today
The Chinese American Football League (CAFL) will be unveiled today, marking a new initiative to bring pro indoor football to major Chinese cities. AFL Philadelphia Soul Owner Marty Judge, who says he has two offices already opened in China with 30 employees, is spearheading the initiative. ESPN’s Ron Jaworski and former NFL coach Dick Vermeil each have equity in the league. The press release going out today claims the league has formal government approval, a necessity with any initiative in the country. David Niu, a former rugby exec, will serve as CAFL Commissioner. The league plans to start with eight teams and sell them for a price of $10M each.
