AAF Opening Weekend Will Be Seen On Multiple Outlets

“Outside of Saturday, CBS Sports Network will handle the lion’s share of the coverage, with the NFL Network and Bleacher Report also claiming rights.”

The long awaited opening day for the American Alliance of Football is upon us, and CBS will be the home of Saturday’s double header.  At 8 pm ET Saturday, the San Diego Fleet will be in the Alamodome taking on the San Antonio Commanders.  While the Fleet and Commanders do battle, the Orlando Apollos will host the Atlanta Legends at Spectrum Stadium.  CBS is expected to hop back and forth between the games, with each individual match up available on CBS All Access.

Sunday, the other 4 teams in the league will make their debuts when the Memphis Express heads to Alabama to take on the Birmingham Iron at 4 pm ET while the Arizona Hotshots play host to the Salt Lake City Stallions at 8 pm ET.  Those games will be on CBS Sports Network and NFL Network respectively.

Outside of Saturday, CBS Sports Network will handle the lion’s share of the coverage, with the NFL Network and Bleacher Report also claiming rights.  TNT is slated to broadcast one regular season game and one playoff game.
