Arizona Hotshots Issue Statement on AAF Decision

April 2, 2019 - Alliance of American Football (AAF) - Arizona Hotshots News Release

On behalf of all of us with the Arizona Hotshots organization, we were shocked and incredibly disappointed to learn of the board's decision to suspend football operations.

Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian delivered a quality football product that fans nationally were watching on TV and online.

While all startups encounter some challenges, we believed ours could be addressed in the offseason, after a successful completion of our first season.

We are grateful to all our players, coaches, staff, corporate partners, and most of all, our fans. We are incredibly thankful to them for coming to Sun Devil Stadium in their green and yellow to make this an experience unlike any other.

It was with great pride that we represented the wildland firefighters who gave us our name. There is nothing we could ever do to thank them and their families enough and everyone in the organization will carry their memories with us wherever we go.

Thank you for your support and for believing in us.
