COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Columbus has one of the most stable indoor football franchises in the nation. The leagues they've played on the other hand haven't been so stable, along with a lot of the other teams in those leagues.
So, enter a new league... the Arena Developmental League.
Their goal is to teach players the right way to do things, on and off the field, to give them a shot at the higher levels in a stable atmosphere, beginning next spring.
Stable franchises like the Columbus Lions are what they're looking for, but no teams have formally joined the league yet.
Existing AIF teams aren't free to apply for membership until their contracts run out on July 18.
The league is owned by Columbus businessmen Kiki and Skip Seda, who are part-owners of the Lions.
