The Alliance of American Football (AAF) and NFL Network announced a multi-year programming deal that includes live event coverage of the Alliance’s inaugural season.

NFL Network will televise 19 AAF games in 2019, starting with a matchup between the Salt Lake Stallions and the Arizona Hotshots on Sunday, Feb. 10. Following the opening weekend, NFL Network will air two games per week in primetime on Saturday and Sunday night.

"NFL Network understands the mission and vision for the Alliance," said Charlie Ebersol, Alliance co-founder and CEO. "This partnership will keep professional football in its primetime television spot, allowing fans to continue watching America's most popular sport well into the spring."

"Having live football games on NFL Network in February, March and April will be a great addition to our lineup and a nice complement to our coverage of the NFL Combine and NFL Draft," said Mark Quenzel, Senior Vice President of Programming and Production at NFL Network.
