Oh....I forgot to tell you about the time during the past season when I was at a local bowling alley and there was an Adrenaline player there selling merchandise out of a trash bag just so he could get payed for playing. This came straight from his mouth during a conversation I had with him.
OK....lets see......where can the Adrenaline play that has an indoor arena with football field capability....>>>>
NAU Walkup Dome - Flagstaff (Home to the Lumberjacks)
US Airways Arena - Phoenix (Home to the Phoenix Suns)
RVHS Dome - Round Valley High School-Eager/Springerville, AZ.
So their best bet is to pack up and move east to Springerville. I know the RVHS Dome can hold 500 people.
And my prediction is still the team will fold. We'll soon see.......wink wink!!!
Reason: Correction on Venue names
Far better for the Adrenaline to move to Tucson or Yuma if Flagstaff or Eastern AZ don't work.

I don't honestly think that The Coliseum or Glendale Arena would even look at the idea. Aifa is too small in comparison to leagues like the AFL and AFL2.
They'll just ask for rent commensurate to what they'd ask of others who might want to use the building. That's guaranteed to be a bit high for an AIFA team.
In other words, I think the possibility exists, no matter how stupid the AIFA owner would be to accept it.
Just note, however: Phoenix has facility glut of a sort. That allows an ECHL team downtown. Conditions for the AIFA in Phoenix are not as stifling as they would be in a one-arena major market.
