2 min read

ATLANTA — The Arena Football League announced a multi-year partnership with Gray Television Inc. to expand broadcast coverage of games for the 2024 season.

The deal allows local teams to be shown over-the-air on Gray-owned tv stations in their respective market. This includes the Georgia Force, Minnesota Myth, Nashville Kats, Louisiana Voodoo, West Texas Desert Hawks, Salina Liberty, Southwest Kansas Storm, Wichita Regulators and Rapid City Marshals.

Gray stations in the United States without an AFL team will also broadcast a Saturday “game of the week” according to a company release.

“We’re excited to bring Spring football to local audiences,” Sandy Breland, Chief
Operating Officer of Gray, said. “This agreement provides another example of how Gray works to strengthen local communities with local and regional sports content.”

The Georgia Force, who will play home games in Atlanta, will broadcast on stations in Atlanta, Savannah, August, Albany, Macon and Columbus through Gray’s Peachtree Sports Network.

“The AFL and Gray TV partnership is a testament to the shared vision to bring spring football
into the homes of local viewers,” AFL Commissioner Lee Hutton said. “The strength and depth that Gray TV will provide the AFL viewership is firmly motivated in their approach to keep the product and quality to the fans always cutting edge and you never get better action than AFL football.”

Coverage will begin on the opening night of the season on April 27.
