Al­liance foot­ball league ends first sea­son early

The Tribune (SLO) - - Sports -

The Al­liance of Amer­i­can Foot­ball ended its first sea­son af­ter eight games and told most employees they will be ter­mi­nated as of Wed­nes­day. Employees were no­ti­fied of the decision in a let­ter from the AAF board Tues­day. The board es­sen­tially is ma­jor­ity owner Tom Dun­don, the NHL’s Carolina Hur­ri­canes owner who in­vested at least $250 mil­lion in the AAF.

The let­ter, ob­tained by the As­so­ci­ated Press, said a small staff would re­main to seek new investment cap­i­tal and “re­struc­ture our busi­ness.” The let­ter said employees would be paid through Wed­nes­day.
