Alliance of American Football has something other leagues lacked, San Antonio mayor says

SAN ANTONIO - The new Alliance of American Football announced Wednesday that its eighth and final team to kick off in 2019 will be located in San Antonio, and Mayor Ron Nirenberg believes this time will be different when it comes to adding a new sports team to the Alamo City.

“The NFL is not a direct competitor. This is spring football,” Nirenberg said. “This is a time when people are thirsting for major professional sports.”
