TULSA, Okla. -- Arena football's new league has reached a one-year agreement with the NFL Network to broadcast a game of the week.
Spokesman Dennis Johnson confirmed Monday that the network will show one of Arena Football One's games each Friday night under the deal, which also has an option for a second year.
The agreement was first reported by Street & Smith's SportsBusiness Journal.
Arena Football One was created in September, combining teams from the former arenafootball2 and new franchises in former Arena Football League cities.
Fifteen teams from cities such as Chicago, Dallas and Cleveland will play games from April to August.
AF1 commissioner Jerry Kurz did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
