NFL Network picks up Shock-Sharks game

Spokane hasn’t been on the NFL Network’s AFL game of the week broadcast yet, but that’s about to change. The Shock’s last three games now will be televised on NFL Network.

The AFL announced Thursday that the season-ending Spokane-Jacksonville clash on July 30 has replaced Tulsa-Oklahoma City on NFL Network under the league’s flex scheduling.

Spokane’s Week 16 (at Iowa) and Week 17 (home vs. Chicago) games were already on the NFL Network schedule. More below.

From AFL office …

TULSA- The Arena Football League has adjusted the schedule of the NFL Network’s Arena Football Friday broadcast for July 30. Originally scheduled to air was the Tulsa at Oklahoma City game, but the game shown will now be the Spokane at Jacksonville game.


“As someone who has spent many years in Oklahoma, the Oklahoma City and Tulsa rivalry is one of my favorites,” Commissioner Jerry B. Kurz said. “However, Spokane and Jacksonville will be a very exciting game with an outcome that may affect the post season dramatically.”

The AFL’s contract with the NFL Network allows for flexibility in the broadcast schedule to ensure the fans will see the game with the most potential. As the last broadcasted game of the regular season, the outcome of Spokane and Jacksonville may alter the seeding and placement of these two division-front runners in the playoffs.
