Kansas City Brigade Returns To The AFL

Bryan BrackneyAnalyst IJune 18, 2010
The AFL has had a busy week.

Yesterday Chris Likens, the owner of the Kansas City Brigade, announced that the franchise would be returning to the AFL in 2011.

“We’ve reached a deal with the new Arena League,” said Likens. “We finished it all this week.”

Likens said he did not join the AFL in 2010 because he did not have the documentation.

“At that time, we really didn’t have documentation or an understanding of what they were trying to achieve,” Likens said. “After seeing the documentation, the single-entity structure and the pay scale of the players — who were perfectly happy to come back — that led us to joining in.”
Three players on each team make $1,000 a game, while everyone else makes $400 a game. The pay is much less than it was in the original AFL.
