Sources have told Arena Insider’s Chase Risman that if San Antonio returns to the Arena Football League in 2016, the Freeman Coliseum will not be an option. The Coliseum is not a “full time sports arena at this time” sources say. The Coliseum has been undergoing renovations over the last few years, and was a possible location for the San Antonio Talons had the Spurs bought them last year.
According to the AFL, discussions with groups interested in bringing the AFL back to San Antonio are ongoing, and as Risman reported in October, the Spurs are “very interested” in starting up their own team for 2016.
Stay tuned for more information on this.
