The Arena Football League announced an agreement with ESPN. Beginning immediately, AFL games will be hosted on the ESPN App or ESPN3.

In addition, ArenaBowl XXXII at the end of the year will be on ESPN2.

“We are delighted to be the national media home for Arena Football League – the leading professional indoor football league in the country,” Scott Guglielmino, Senior Vice President, Programming and Acquisitions, ESPN said. “The AFL complements our commitment to serve fans with the best available football action year-round.”

The Philadelphia Soul and the Baltimore Brigade will be the first two teams to have their games on this new media rights agreement. The Soul visit the Brigade on Friday night at 7 pm at Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.

There will be two games on the service on Saturday. First, in the inaugural debut of the Atlantic City Blackjacks at Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall, they play host to the Columbus Destroyers beginning at 3:30 pm.

Following that contest, the Albany Empire will host the Washington Valor at 7:30 pm.

“We are pleased for the AFL, its players, coaches and fans, to be able to announce that all of our games will be broadcast on ESPN,” AFL Commissioner Randall Boe said. “We are pleased and proud to be working with ESPN and think they will be a great partner to help us grow the AFL.”
