JACKSONVILLE – The Jacksonville Sharks of the Arena Football League announced today they are in the final stages of moving to a rival league for the 2017 season.
“It became quite obvious over the last couple of years we were going to eventually move to a rival league, stated Sharks Operating Manager Jeff Bouchy. Constantly growing League expenses and the lack of League revenue led to crippling operational costs of AFL teams. Now was the right time to move the Sharks into an exciting new League that will become the premier league in arena/indoor football. Other teams from the AFL are expected to join us in this new chapter in Sharks’ history.”
The Sharks expect to announce their new league affiliation as early as next week.
