Shock can ink players Nov. 1

The fledgling Arena Football 1 has made its first official announcement since the league's initial press conference in late September. Teams can sign coaches and players beginning Nov. 1.


It sounds like several teams (not among the original 16) are still working on final details before the league releases more details on the upcoming season.


A press release from the league can be found below.


TULSA – The League Office of Arena Football One announced today that member teams will commence the signing of both Head Coaches and players beginning November 1, 2009.
Member teams are given league contracts to sign both Head Coaches and players.  These league contracts are submitted to the Arena Football One football operations department for ultimate approval and execution.
“We are pleased to begin the process of signing coaches and players,” said Commissioner Jerry Kurz. “This process will be the culmination and final stages in solidifying the highest caliber and only professional playing of Arena Football.”
